Letter About Spain

London, England: Aloes Books, 2016. Limited First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. Inscribed & signed twice by author; inscribed & signed by publisher. An evocative piece of epistolary literature by Alexander Adams, a poet, writer & award-winning artist. Adams is a member of the European Beat Studies Network (ebsn.eu), where he has delivered outstanding presentations at its annual conferences. This writer has had the pleasure & privilege of being a friend & EBSN colleague of the author. Another colleague, Jim Pennington, publisher of the legendary Aloes Books imprint (issuer of William S. Burroughs' White Subway among its collectible classics), collaborated with Adams to produce this beautifully crafted production. As noted in a private letter to me from Adams, only 65 copies of this edition along with one Author's Proof were produced in London during August of 2016, although the official limitation is 75. This copy is No. 58/75(65). Further, this is one of only two copies with lilac-colored wrappers, the other of which is in my personal possession. It is signed by the author in black ink below his printed name on title page. He has additionally inscribed in pencil: "for Arthur Nusbaum/ with thanks &/ best wishes/ (signed) Alexander." Publisher-printer Jim Pennington has also inscribed in pencil: "Arthur/ - all the best/ (signed) Jim Pennington/ printer." The printing of this edition was done on a vintage Gestetner machine in the manner of the Mimeo Revolution productions of the 1960s, as demonstrated by Pennington at the 2016 EBSN conference in Manchester, UK. A significant work by a true torch-bearer of the Beat-&-Beyond legacy with his own unique voice; & an exquisite collectible with special associations & attributes, destined for increasing value. In very fine condition, as hand-craftedly new with tiny bumps & creases at upper edges & corners of front, back wrapper & spine as issued. Very Fine. [Item #3022]
