Empty Mirror: Early Poems by Allen Ginsberg

New York, NY: Totem Press/Corinth Books, 1961. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. Signed (very uniquely) by Allen Ginsberg. A first printing of Empty Mirror, a compilation of early poems by Allen Ginsberg published in 1961, with an introduction by William Carlos Williams. On the title page is a most bizarrely unique, collectible autograph with citation by the poet: At the upper right corner, in thick black marker, someone has written "To Tom (Tim?)/A.G.," which has been x'd-out in thinner black ink apparently by Ginsberg, who writes just below, "Forged!/Help!" Below his printed name & "Introduction by William Carlos Williams" is Ginsberg's hand-signature. A forged initial-autograph exposed & made good on by the real deal! A most collectible example of this important Ginsberg Rarity. In near-fine condition with moderate browning, rubbing, creasing, scratching & spotting to front, back covers & esp. spine; small bump-creases to all corners esp. at top & bottom of spine with minor chips. Near Fine. [Item #2051]

Price: $250.00
