About This Item

Santa Barbara, CA The Jargon Society, 1980. Paperback First Edition (1980), unstated in accordance with Jargon's customary practice. First Edition (1980), unstated in accordance with Jargon's customary practice. Very Good+ to Near Fine in Wraps: shows indications of careful use, but does show very faint soiling to the open-weave wrapper covers; the binding is ever-so slightly cocked off square, but remains perfectly secure; the text is clean. Free of any creases to the covers. Free of underlining, hi-lighting, notations, or marginalia. Free of creased or dog-eared pages in the text. Free of any ownership names, dates, addresses, notations, inscriptions, stamps, plates, or labels. A handsome nearly-new copy, structurally sound and tightly bound, showing the mildest wear and a single unobtrusive flaw. Bright and Clean. Virtually "As New". NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Oblong 64mo. (4.5 x 7 x 0.35 inches). Pastedown fern motif at the front panel. White wraps with brown titles at the front panel; black titles at the backstrip. Designed by Jonathan Williams. Language: English. Weight: 3.8 ounces. Jargon 93. Paperback: Perfect Wraps. The Jargon Society is an independent press founded by the American poet Jonathan Williams. The Jargon Society has published seminal works of the American literary avant-garde, including books by Charles Olson, Louis Zukofsky, Paul Metcalf, James Broughton, and Williams himself. Though most of Jargon's writers are either cult figures or genuine obscurities, the books themselves are often intricately designed deluxe editions. Guy Davenport described the Jargon Society as "a paradoxical fusion of fine printing and samizdat diffusion."
