NP. [New York]: ND, [1968 -1975]. First edition 1 of 1 copy. A collection of 24 mostly "Beat" poet hands drawn with poetic license by their owner's other hand [well] - mostly from the late 60's; the earliest dated '68 - the latest dated '75 including the paws of Ginsberg & Corso, Bill Berkson. Dick Gallup, Anne Waldman, John Giorno, Ron Padgett, Joe Brainard, Gerald Malanga, Jim Carroll, Ted Berrigan, & others - in a 30 page Artist's 9" x 12" unpaginated Sketch Book in basically fine condition. I don't remember who started it all - one of the crew. The first hand is Berkson's & the last is signed Gregory Nunzio Corso in full. [Saroyan's is a loose insert on card stock] Ginsberg's hand "ah" is that of the master - in itself worth the price of admission, neatly adorned with AG Mantras. All in all a Hip New York moment in the continuum - a remarkable relic from the period, 23 original ink drawings. Unique. The Lefties win on paper 14 2 10 but only on paper. In excellent condition.
