Item #31425 Villon. Jean Calais, Stephen Rodefer.


Placitas, NM: Duende Press, 1976. First edition. Small 8vo, printed wraps.

First edition of one of the best conceptual poetry books published in the decade, from the design (satiricizing the City Lights pocket poetry series) to the holy liberties taken in the translation and the footnotes. A second edition followed five years later but abandoned the Pickpocket Poets format.

This example has some light erosion to back cover - perhaps long ago insect damage - but is otherwise much brighter and sharper than usually found. Item #31425

Price: $150.00
