Howl; Kaddish (French Edition). Allen Ginsberg.

Howl; Kaddish (French Edition)

Paris, France: Christian Bourgois, 1980. First French Softcover Edition Thus, First (?) Printing. Softcover. Two of Allen Ginsberg's most important poems, Howl & Kaddish, in one bilingual edition published in France. With English text on left pages & French translation on right pages. English text corrected by Ginsberg in 1976 for this edition; translations into French by Robert Cordier & Jean-Jaques Lebel, with the collaboration of Christine Tysh. There is a 1977 copyright reference by the publisher, & we are aware of a separate edition of Kaddish only first published in 1976 by this same imprint. This is a stated 1980 printing, possibly the first printing of this double edition, in any case an early printing. An interesting Ginsberg collectible, & a handy source for the French-fluent scholar. In very fine condition with only very mild rubbing & scratching to front, back covers & spine; faint sunning/tanning esp. at upper spine; very minor bumps & wear at edges & corners. Interior very fine except for light browning of pages esp. margins & edges. Very Fine. [Item #2251]
