Sixpack 6 w/Sixpack 7/8

London, England: Sixpack / Pierre Joris, 1974. First Printing. Softcover. Signed by decorated Essayist, Educator, Poet and Translator Clayton Eshleman. Offered here are two contiguous issues of Pierre Joris' "Sixpack" magazine of London, England, featuring work from a host of familiar names known to many readers of mid-century American literature. Issue six contains contributions from Ted Berrigan, William S. Burroughs, Clayton Eshleman, Allen Ginsberg, John Giorno, Jackson Mac Low, Eric Mottram, Alice Notley and Jerome Rothenberg, among noted others. Both magazines are bound in a fragile manner, having not only been read thoroughly by their former owner James Perrizo, collector and onetime assistant to Edie-Kerouac Parker, first wife of Jack Kerouac, but the pages and overall construction of the book seem too heavy for its softcover binding. Because of this, there are unleaved pages that have torn from the binding in both issues offered here, yet no individual pages are missing from either copy. It is because of this that we offer these volumes, signed by decorated essayist, educator, poet and translator Clayton Eshleman, at the bargain price of which they are currently being offered. Issue 7/8 is a special issue devoted and dedicated to Paul Blackburn, who died in 1971 at age 44. Included are memoir-esque recollections of Blackburn from his many friends and fellow poets that respected and cared for him deeply. Blackburn's involvement at the St. Mark's Poetry Project, among other countercultural hubs, is here discussed in detail by those who experienced his genius and magnanimity first hand. Eshleman signature on Issue No. 6 at top right-hand corner of title page and reads: "Clayton Eshleman" in thin black felt pen ink. Eshleman signature on Issue No. 7/8 reads: "for Jim / Perrizo. from / a dove friend of / dear / P.B. / CE. / 1988 / YPSI." Besides the aforementioned binding issues, book is in good condition with slight shelf-wear to fine-edges; slight staining to topmost fine-edge of front cover; minor rubbing to front & back covers. Good. [Item #3055]
