On the Wing by Anne Waldman; Hijacking by Lewis Warsh

New York, NY: Boke Press, 1968. First Printing. Stapled Sheets. An early publication by Anne Waldman, the great Beat Generation/New York School poet who co-founded the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University with Allen Ginsberg. A collection of thirteen poems, most of average length but book-ended by "Airplane" & "People" which each consist of one short, haunting stanza-phrase. Published as one of two collections, the other is Hijacking by Lewis Warsh. Waldman & Warsh co-founded the literary journal & publisher Angel Hair. Arranged side-by-side & upside-down from each other, with two front covers both illustrated with silhouettes by the legendary Joe Brainard. As noted on the copyright pages, the two books in one were issued in an edition of 500, 25 of which were signed by Waldman, Warsh & Brainard. This copy is one of the 475 unsigned editions. An important Waldman/Warsh collectible. In very fine condition with only mild rubbing, browning & spotting to front, back covers esp. at side edges of Waldman cover & side, upper edges of Warsh cover; staples just beginning to rust; small faint crease along upper left (Warsh) & lower right (Waldman) corners of covers. Interior very fine except for mild spotting of tissue sheets over title pages of both collections; mild browning of upper & side edges of page leaves; faint corner crease noted above continuing through same.
