Oh Accident! Michael McClure.

Oh Accident!

California, PA: The Unspeakable Visions of the Individual Press, Circa 1976. Limited First Edition. Single Sheet. Signed by Michael McClure. A small broadside (approx. 5&1/2"x8&1/2") with a haiku poem by Michael McClure, a primary poet-playwright of the San Francisco renaissance, the Beat Generation & beyond. One of 26 lettered copies for sale, from a total edition of 126. The other 100 copies were given as gifts to friends of the poet & subscribers to The Unspeakable Visions of the Individual Press, the pioneering imprint of Arthur & Kit Knight. This is copy "X." Beneath his printed name below the haiku, McClure has boldly signed his name. Publisher's & limitation information on verso. This work later appears as the first of a long group of haikus under the title of "Haiku Edge: For Ray Manzarek" at the beginning of the volume Rain Mirror (New Directions Books, 1999). A beautiful production, & a very rare McClure collectible. In very fine condition, virtually mint except for tiny fold at lower left edge. Mounted on stiff board, in protective shrinkwrap. Light dusting of spots & debris on surface of shrinkwrap, not broadside. Very Fine. [Item #2260]

Price: $80.00
