Broadside Announcement of Poetry Reading. Gary Snyder.

Broadside Announcement of Poetry Reading

Berkeley, CA: Myths & Texts Bookstore, Circa 1976. First Printing. Single Sheet. A broadside (11"x17") announcing "a reading in homage to dance and the vajra-solid arts of South India" by Gary Snyder, a primary poet of the Beat Generation & beyond. The event was "a benefit for the Balasaraswati Music & Dance Co. School" & was held on Friday, February 13 at a Junior High School in Berkeley, CA. No year is noted, but it could have been either 1970 or we believe more likely 1976. With uncredited photographic illustration entitled along lower left side margin: "Sarasvati as goddess of poetry and music, standing on a lotus." A unique & beautiful Snyder-related rarity. In very fine condition with only a few short, faint creases along surfaces & at upper left, lower right corners. Currently mounted on stiff board, in protective shrinkwrap. Will be shipped carefully rolled in a tube. Very Fine. [Item #2410]

Price: $65.00
