West Indies Poems

New York, NY: Adventures in Poetry/The Poetry Project, 1972. Limited First Edition. Stapled Sheets. Hand-lettered & numbered edition signed by poet Anne Waldman & artist Joe Brainard. An early collection of poems relating to the title locale by Anne Waldman, among the primary poets of the later Beat Generation, the New York School & beyond. With front, back cover & three full-page interior illustrations by the legendary writer/artist Joe Brainard. One of 26 hand-lettered & numbered copies (out of a total edition of 300) signed by the poet & artist. This is copy Ltr."t"/No. 20. The signatures are large & bold, Waldman's in purple felt-tip ink; Brainard's in black felt-tip ink. Printed at The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church in-The-Bowery & published by Adventures in Poetry (issuers of the legendary literary journal of that name), most exemplary of the poetic ferment in NYC during this period. One of the very rarest Waldman collectibles, particularly with her & Brainard's signatures together. In very fine condition with only slightest rubbing & scratching to front, back covers esp. at staple edges; tiny, faint bumps at upper left corner of front cover & upper left, lower right corners of back cover; staples just beginning to rust. Interior very fine except for tiny, faint bumps at most upper corners of page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #2306]
