About This Item

Los Angeles: Black Sparrow Press, 1968. First Edition. Wrappers. According to Morrow and Cooney (Bibliography of the Black Sparrow Press, 22), there were three paperbound issues of this book: 770 copies in oversized, untrimmed wrappers; 142 copies glued unevenly, and trimmed on all edges; and 26 copies from extra sheets intended for the hardbound edition, in trimmed wrappers, with colophon printed in blue (6 of which were used for presentation purposes). In addition, there were 69 copies handbound in boards. This copy, in wrappers trimmed flush, with colophon printed in blue, would then be one of the 20 such which were for sale. An early book of the press, in the numerically smallest issue. Some sunning to wrappers, otherwise a fine, unread copy. 8vo.

About Passages Bookshop

Passages Bookshop stocks fine, rare, and unusual books and graphic art, with a concentration on modern and contemporary literature and art (particularly poetry and the avant-garde), artist's books, fine printing, and the book arts. The successor to New York City's Bridge Bookshop (late 1980s), Passages opened in Albuquerque in 1994 and relocated to Portland, Oregon, in 1997. In November of 2015 we moved to a new retail shop and gallery centrally located in Portland's east side, two blocks north of the convention center, where we are typically open Thursday through Saturday from 12:00 to 6:00 pm, as well as by appointment or chance. Proprietor: David Abel, info@passagesbookshop.com
