Consulting I Ching Smoking Pot Listening to the Fugs Sing Blake

Pleasant Valley, New York: Kriya Press, 1967. Limited Edition. Broadside. 14” x 19” including frame. Broadside This is lettered copy “J,” either out of 100 copies total or 26 lettered copies in addition to 100 numbered copies. An illustrated broadside featuring a short poem by Allen Ginsberg, composed under the influences as indicated in the title, in June 1966. Ginsberg was in full hippie bloom a decade after his groundbreaking arrival on the scene as one of the most important Beats. Issued by the Kriya Press of Sri Ram Ashrama in a limited edition of one hundred copies. It is the only lettered copy available that we know of, a rarity within a rarity, among the scarcest Ginsberg collectibles. In exceptionally fine condition. The few numbered copies that we have encountered are usually not nearly as pristine as this. In black-painted wood frame in fair condition with chips, several tears in paper backing & under glass, probably not archival. Because the broadside itself is exceptionally rare & in such near-mint condition, we recommend that it be re-framed with archival glass after purchase, or the current frame at least retouched & re-backed. Very Fine. [Item #1659]
