Locus Solus III-IV: New Poetry
Lans-en-Vercors, France: Locus Solus, Winter 1962.
First printing. Paperback. 294 pp. 8vo, sewn binding in wrappers. Each of the volumes of this renowned journal was edited by one of the four principals (though there were five numbers in total, III-IV was a double issue, making for just four volumes). This is a double issue edited by John Ashbery, including Ashbery's translations of poems by Pierre Martory, Denis Roche, and Marcelin Pleynet, as well as poems by Frank O'Hara, LeRoi Jones, Larry Rivers, Robin Blaser, Diane Di Prima, Robert Lax, George Stanley, Joseph Ceravolo, Barbara Guest, and many others. Faint sunning along spine, barely noticable bumps to corners, text slightly darkened at edges -- all as usual for these issues -- yet a tight and unopened/unread copy. Very Good. Item #3158
