Yellow River Record

London, England: Big Venus, 1969. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. Signed by Clayton Eshleman. "It is the record of the first two-thirds of an LSD experience with (the poet's wife) Caryl. More narrative than I usually write, but that was my concern in this piece; to get the experience on record."(excerpt from quoted portion of a letter dated July 26, 1969) Thus does Clayton Eshleman, the acclaimed & prolific poet, describe this poem dedicated to his contemporary, Robert Kelly. A most accurate & inspired narration of an actual vintage trip by this great poet at the (enhanced) height of his early powers. This copy is boldly hand-signed by Eshleman on the title page. An important historical document, & a most desirable Eshleman collectible. In exceptionally very fine condition with only short, faint creases & bumps at corners of front, back covers & spine likely as issued; light printers' ink residue mostly in blank areas of front, back covers certainly as issued; otherwise substantially mint inside & out, even staples are free of rust. Very Fine. [Item #2501]
