On a Theme by Lawrence, Hearing Purcell

Buffalo, NY: Just Buffalo Literary Center, 1978. First Printing. Single Sheet. Signed by Robert Creeley. A bold broadside (17"x11") with the title poem by Robert Creeley, presumably referring to the author D.H. Lawrence & the seventeenth century English composer Henry Purcell. Creeley (1926-2005), associated with the Beats & the Black Mountain poets, is a most significant figure in the American poetry canon. This production was issued by the Just Buffalo Literary Center in reference to readings there on December 1, 1978 by Creeley & others. Below the poem & Creeley's name in calligraphic print is his hand-signature. With illustrations. A beautiful & scarce Creeley collectible. In very fine condition, with only a few very light creases & scratches that may be as issued; & tiny fold-crease with minor rubbing at lower left corner.

Item is currently mounted on stiff board, in protective shrink wrap, will be shipped rolled in a tube.
Very Fine. [Item #2005]

Price: $175.00
