Dromenon Press, 1989. First Printing. Single Sheet. Signed with drawing & citation by Clayton Eshleman to James Perrizo. A broadside-poster (12"x18") announcing a reading by Clayton Eshleman, the acclaimed "poet, translator and editor of SULFUR MAGAZINE" as noted, on October 22, 1989 at a restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Among a series of readings under the title "Word of Mouth." With a black & white reproduction of a print by Salvador Dali. At the bottom edge, Eshleman has hand-written & drawn a particularly rich citation in red ink: "For Jim Perrizo (three stacked short horizontal lines; drawing of lips with six tendrils extending, at the end of which are small eye-lips) out of the mouth of/the poem, Tantric eyes/mobilize as Calder spheres. 1989./(signed) Clayton Eshleman" James Perrizo (1944-2006), a collector & Beat generation scholar, knew Eshleman & was a major collector of his works. A most unique Eshleman collectible with artistic & literary associations. In very fine condition with only a few very light, almost imperceptible scratches on surface not effecting image, text or citation-drawing; one tiny pinhole at middle of upper edge.
