About This Item

San Francisco: Auerhahn Press, 1965. First edition. 4to, 160 pp, bound in boards woodblock by Robert Lavigne printed in color, and back in vellum with titled stamped in gilt. Illustrated with a frontipiece portrait of Olson by Kenneth Irby. Lacking the unprinted paper jacket, as often.

One of the most beautiful books from the press, the LaVigne print a remarkable work in itself.

Boards slightly bent, some dust-soiling to top edge of text black, and darkening to the vellum. Very good.
