Broadside/Prospectus for "Thanking My Mother For Piano Lessons a poem"

Mt. Horeb, WI: The Perishable Press, 1969. First Printing. Single Sheet. Signed by Diane Wakoski. A broadside-prospectus (approx. 4&1/8"x10&3/4") announcing the publication of the title poem by Diane Wakoski, the venerable, prolific poet who has long resided in Michigan. With reproduction of a vintage diagram "...of the piano's internal workings" as noted in the colophon information. The book promoted here is a limited edition of 250 copies published by Walter Hamady's legendary Perishable Press in 1969. The Press also produced this item, an exquisite production on handmade paper with irregular bottom & esp. left edges. In the lower margin, Wakoski has hand-signed her name with her characteristic vertical series of illustrations & dots. An important piece of Wakoski ephemera, & a most desirable rarity within a rarity. In very fine condition with only one faint horizontal crease through middle where originally folded; otherwise in perfect condition. Mounted on stiff board, in protective shrinkwrap. Very Fine.
