Prose: On Poetry in the Wholesale Education and Cultural System [One of 300 Copies]
by LEVY, D.A.
(Milwaukee): (Gunrunner Press). (1968). Poetry by the legendary figure of the Cleveland underground and counterculture, author of The North American Book of the Dead, among others. Levy was a writer and, with bookseller Jim Lowell of the Asphodel Bookshop, a publisher and distributor of his own and others' writings. An outspoken anti-establishment writer, he committed suicide at the age of 26. This is the uncommon first edition of this title, one of 300 copies printed, although it appears scarcer than that: most of Levy's books were printed in Cleveland, and this one seems to have not survived in the quantities that some of the others, even with smaller limitations, did. It was later reprinted in 1974 and again in 1988 and in a bilingual French-English edition in 2011, with all of the later editions being more readily available than this first edition. Mild edge sunning, else fine in stapled wrappers. First Edition. Softcover. Near Fine. (Inventory #: 032302)
