The Coldspring Journal No. 3 (November 1974)

Cherry Valley, NY: Cherry Valley Editions, 1974. Limited First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. This third number of the literary anthology published by Charles & Pamela Beach Plymell's Cherry Valley Editions features a capsule biographical impression of Charles Plymell by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, the great primary poet & publisher of the Beat Generation who has outlived almost all his peers, still active at almost age 97 as of this writing (last entry, untitled & not on index, dated "November, 'Sixty-nine"). Also contributions by Bruce Andrews (two poems including "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me"); David Ball (four poems including "Good Restaurants" & "A Surge of Passion"); Israel Halpern (four poems including "Nun with the Golden Habit"); Sotere Torregian (Three poems including "Anne's: For Anne (Waldman)"); & many more. One of 250 copies on Kraft paper as noted in colophon. Another very rare & desirable Cherry Valley Edition, rich with Beat & other literary associations. In very fine condition with only very minor waving & tiny bumps at corners of some page leaves; angled crease across parts of two (un-paginated) leaves, undoubtedly flaws as issued; otherwise substantially mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #2453]
