I Am San Francisco

North Salem, NY; San Francisco, CA: Bottle Of Smoke Press; Second Coming Press, 2016. Limited First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. Inscribed & signed by A.D. Winans to Charles Plymell An exemplary poem by the great American Beat-&-Beyond poet, prose writer & publisher who is so associated with San Francisco & its literary Renaissance(s) that he can indeed proclaim he IS that city. As noted in colophon, this is one of only 80 (unnumbered) copies printed by Bill Roberts' Bottle of Smoke Press & published jointly with Winans' Second Coming Press, to commemorate the poet's 80th birthday "as gifts for friends of the presses and author." Each copy is signed by Winans, on this very special copy he has hand-inscribed & signed on title page: "To Charley Plymell,/ a "real" poet who/ has "walked the walk"/ while others talk/ the talk. Rock on/ my friend./ (signed) A.D. Winans." Charles Plymell, the legendary poet, printer & publisher, is a kindred spirit of Winans who shares his uncompromising reputation as a Literary Outlaw. A beautiful hand-sewn chapbook production, & an extremely rare Winans collectible with especially rich association & provenance. In very fine condition with only very light rubbing & a few short, faint creases to front, back covers & spine; tiny amount of wear & a few miniscule bumps at edges & corners of same. Interior very fine, virtually as-new. Very Fine. [Item #3353]
