Shaker Light. Robert Peters.

Shaker Light

Milwaukee, WI: Pentagram Press, 1975. Limited First Edition. Single Sheet. Signed by Robert Peters. A broadside (11"x17") with 10 short poems by Robert Peters on verso; & a drawing by Harley Elliot, along with colophon & other information of publisher on front side. Peters (1924-2014), the acclaimed & prolific poet, critic & educator, would later publish most of these poems in a collection with the same title in 1987. As noted, "350 copies of this broadside have been printed...26 have been lettered & signed by the poet & publisher & are not for sale..." Although this is not among the officially signed lettered copies, Peters has boldly hand-signed his name in full just below the right portion of Elliot's drawing. A beautiful, rare Peters collectible. In very fine condition with one horizontal crease across middle where originally folded in half; a few very faint creases & waves on surface & at edges; very light browning, rubbing at edges. Currently mounted on stiff board, in protective shrinkwrap. Will be shipped carefully rolled in a tube. Very Fine. [Item #2312]
