El Corno Emplumado / The Plumed Horn No. 17, 1966

Mexico City, Mexico: The Plumed Horn, 1966. First Printing. Softcover. Signed by Clayton Eshleman & Diane Wakoski. "From January, 1962 through July, 1969, El Corno Emplumado / The Plumed Horn was on the cutting edge of independent publishing. The bilingual quarterly, which ran from 100 to almost 300 pages per issue, published some of the best new work to come out of Latin and North America—with occasional sections from Canada, Finland, France, and other countries. Its 3,000 copies were distributed worldwide. The journal was founded and co-edited by Margaret Randall and Sergio Mondragon...Because it took a stand in defense of Mexico’s 1968 Student Movement, in mid-1969 the journal was forced to close. It had published 31 issues and a dozen books." (Margaret Randall, English Editor of The Plumed Horn, www.margaretrandall.org). With an eccentric list of Beat & Beyond globe-spanning contributors, "The Plumed Horn" always delivered publications with the finest content from a plethora of major writers. This issue features Carol Berge, who wrote "The Vancouver Report" for Ed Sanders' "The Fuck You Press: A Magazine of the Arts" about the legendary 1963 Vancouver Poetry Conference. Also featured are writers of Beat distinction such as Allen Ginsberg & Anselm Hollo, poets such as Robert Kelly & Clayton Eshleman (often associated with the "Deep Image" movement), Black Mountain associate Fielding Dawson, and Michigan-based poet Diane Wakoski among many, many more accomplished authors featured in this revolutionary journal. With original attached subscription card on pg. 158, at the end of Allen Ginsberg's contribution. Presence of subscription card has further yellowed the pages and area in which it sat but is in pristine condition. A rare literary journal that provided much-needed anarchic & political solace for revolutionary writers of the era. Eshleman signature appears in full on title page in black ink. Wakoski signature appears in full in black ink with signature doodle-flourish at her contribution in the journal. Journal in very good condition with only minor rubbing to front, back covers; bump-creases to top right-hand corner of front cover; uniform moderate shelf-wear throughout front, back covers esp. at spine-edges; slight uniform yellowing to pages esp. at edges & at all sides of text block. Very Good. [Item #2771]
