From the Rig-Veda to the Hotel Wentley

Berkeley: University of California, Letters and Science Extension, 1965
Single legal-size mimeo sheet, with a two-column reading list of authors and titles, presumably distributed to the members of the seminars. One horizontal fold near bottom, trivial faint creasing at edge, otherwise nearly pristine.

A remarkable document from the historic Berkeley conference (at which Olson gave a reading, delivered Causal Mythology as a lecture, and held these seminars), with exceptional provenance: from the papers of Tram Combs.

Poet, publisher, and bookseller Combs, among his accomplishments, spent many years assembling the first comprehensive collection of the primary publications of postwar Bay Area poets; during the 1965 conference, the Combs collection was on display at the University’s Bancroft Library, to which it was eventually donated.

Rare.
