Salted Feathers/10, Vol. IV, No. 3, August 1967

Portland, OR: Dick Bakken & Lee Altman, 1967. First Printing. Stapled Sheets. This issue of the short-lived literary journal from the heyday of the 1960s independent-underground press features the poem "Stotras to Kali Destroyer of Illusions" by Allen Ginsberg, an inspired work composed in Bombay (now Mumbai), India during his famous sojourn there in 1962. Also a poem by Charles Bukowski, "Answer To a Note found In the Mailbox:"; four poems by Federico Garcia Lorca translated from the Spanish into English by Robert Lima; a section of full-page photographs of Ginsberg, Gary Snyder & others; & more. One of an edition of 500, this copy contains a loose sheet, folded in half horizontally, with information about a "last" issue to be published after this (which we believe was never printed) on the upper outer half, a vintage Vietnam War draft resistance message from the War Resisters league in NYC complete with a peace sign on the lower outer half, & a subscription form for the "last" issue on verso. A very scarce appearance of Ginsberg & other important countercultural literary figures, especially with the loose sheet intact. In near-fine condition with moderate browning, rubbing & spots at top left edge, upper & mid-left edge of front cover; small bump-creases at all corners of same; back cover has less browning, rubbing & is bumped-creased only at lower right corner, but it is detached from the rest of the journal; tiny holes along right edge of back cover where pierced by staples- it appears staples may have not grasped back cover & left it loose as issued. Interior fine except for browning of edges of relatively thick but delicate, acidic paper stock. Near Fine. [Item #2054]
