About This Item

Lowell, MA: Bootstrap Press, 2010. First printing. 158 pp., 5.5 x 8.75 inches. Bound in decorated cloth. Edited by James Dunn, and with an introduction by the editor and publishers. Issued in an edition of 258 numbered copies, with several pieces of ephemera laid in; this is an unnumbered, out-of-series copy, without the ephemera, but otherwise as new.

A New Book from Rome is a transcription (with some facsimile pages) of the contents of a notebook, a journal kept during "a six-month period from July, 1969 to January, 1970, covering his stint in Central Islip State Mental Hospital on Long Island to the time around Charles Olson's death when he was back in Massachussetts living with his parents."
