"An explanation by Allen Ginsberg of his publication Howl and Richard Eberhart's New York Times article "West Coast Rhythms" together with comments by both poets and relief etchings by Jerome Kaplan."(from title page) This short compilation of writings offers great insight into Ginsberg's poem, a founding document of the Beat Generation, from himself & the poet-critic Eberhart, from two perspectives: 1956, when the poem was just being introduced; & twenty years later. This is one of 300 hardbound copies, out of a total edition of 1,500, numbered & signed by both Ginsberg & Eberhart. This is copy #234/300. An important Ginsberg rarity, exquisitely produced & in generally quite fine condition except for some spotting to top edge; & two open tear-holes in the cloth at lower spine, one very tiny, the other about 3/4" long & effecting the last letter of the name of the silver color-stamped name of publisher. Fine. [Item #1817]
