A Coney Island of the Mind: Poems.

Ferlinghetti, Lawrence

San Francisco: City Light. First edition of this modern classic, which contains some of Ferlinghetti's most famous poems, such as "I Am Waiting" and "Junkman's Obbligato", which were created for jazz accompaniment. Octavo, original illustrated wrappers as issued. Signed by Lawrence Ferlinghetti on the title page. In near fine condition. The title of this book is taken from Henry Miller's "Into the Night Life" and expresses the way Lawrence Ferlinghetti felt about these poems when he wrote them during a short period in the 1950's-as if they were, taken together, a kind of Coney Island of the mind, a kind of circus of the soul.
