About This Item

Ferlinghetti, Lawrence. Where Is Vietnam? San Francisco, CA: City Lights Books, 1965. First edition, first printing. Broadside (8½ x 14"). Published in 1965 – a decisive and important year in the development of the Vietnam War – Lawrence Ferlinghetti's "Where Is Vietnam?" provided a pointed pacifist political commentary from a distinguished voice in American letters. This is a true first edition, first printing, verified by the misspelling of "gentlemen" in line 18 as "gentelmen", a mistake revised in the second printing. Ferlinghetti recalls that there were only 100 copies printed of this broadside, bibliographer Bill Morgan states that there were 1000 printed across all printings and editions and Ralph Cook (in City Lights Books' Descriptive Bibliography) provides an estimate of 100-1000, again across all printings. This copy is hand-signed by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, in the much-rarer manner of writing out his full first and last names as opposed to the much more common last-name-only style that marks the majority of his signatures. This is among the rarest and most significant items of our collectible offerings. In very fine condition with two horizontal creases where originally folded in thirds; there is one faint crease near the upper right corner of the top front panel (lower right corner of verso); a small crease-fold at upper left corner of front panel (lower left corner of verso); small smudge just above upper crease at left edge of verso. Very fine. Broadside. Signed by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
