Postcard [with unpublished manuscript poem.]

(GINSBERG, Allen.) BERRIGAN, Ted.

  • Quantity available: 1
Grindstone City: The Alternative Press,, [1982]. Post card (177 x 114 mm), imprint and small emblem to recto, verso with 8-line manuscript poem by Allen Ginsberg in his hand, additionally titled "POSTCARD" and captioned at the end by Ted Berrigan. Fine. An exceptional example of Ted Berrigan's scarce Postcard poems, more usually found with his own manuscript compositions, but here with a manuscript poem by Allen Ginsberg written out in his hand. The poem, beginning "A passport to the land of enchantment..." appears to be a satirical mediation on Hollywood, including mentions of Ginger Rogers, Ronald Reagan, and Charlie Chaplin, and has not been published. Berrigan has captioned it at the foot: "Allen Ginsberg wrote this for me, one a.m. / 11 Feb 1982 / NY, Ted Berrigan." This unique piece of poetic ephemera is particularly appealing for bringing together two major American poets. Berrigan (1934-1983), though he did consider himself "a late Beat", was a key figure ...

Paris FRANCE, 1795. On offer is a superb, unique circa 1795, Year 4 of the Revolution, manuscript document relating to the liberation from prison of a 68 year old man. [Almost an extraordinary age for a man in prison conditions of the era.] The prison was the famous Bicetre and this is a detailed account of the affair. The man had a fake passport and had been arrested by soldiers. This is all the more an exceptional document given the 150+ year history of the Bicetre which in its ay was an orphanage, military hospital and lunatic asylum. The Bicêtre is most famous as the Asylum de Bicêtre where in 1793 Superintendent Philippe Pinel is credited as being the first to introduce humane methods into the treatment of the mentally ill and this letter and its content may well be a rare exhibit of those new policies. Signed Aubin and Jourdaire. 2pp, 7-3/4 x 12". VG.. Manuscript. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. French.

Manuscript booklet signed, in Italian and French. Issued in February, 1832. 20pp., (151 x 105mm). Written in at least 40 varying hands, with signatures of passport control officials, with stamps and seals from several European countries and city-states, including Bologna, Ferrara, Venice, Verona, Ginevra, Sesto, Geneva, Ville de Havre, Valenciennes, Danvers, and Rotterdam; remnant of unsigned red wax seal on p. 18; (lightly worn, some stamps fading). Scarce and interesting piece of European travel ephemera with all authentic stamps intact. The rapid expansion of rail travel in Europe from the mid-19th century led to a breakdown of the European passport system of the early part of the 19th century. The speed of trains, as well as the numbers of passengers that crossed many borders, made enforcement of passport laws difficult. The general reaction was the relaxation of passport requirements to which little was recorded, hence an unspecified passport, like this copy, was not uncommon.
