The Tijuana Bible Arcane

Hirschman, Jack

San Francisco: Deliriodendron Press, n.d.

First printing. (4) pp., 8.5 x 11 inches. Single sheet folded once to make four pages. Cover collage image, presumably by the poet, based on a courtroom scene from a Tijuana bible, with heads and word balloon replaced to match the content of the poem, which condemns in appropriately riotous, carnal, and scurrilous terms the Bush administration’s crimes in Iraq, Abu Ghraib, etc. Signed on the front cover in red felt marker. Just a hint of bleed-through of signature on first page, and very faint creasing along fold, otherwise about fine. Item #4665

Uncommon; WorldCat finds only two copies, at the Bancroft and the Beinecke.

Price: $25.00
