Two Poems of Desire

Milan, Italy: Il Ragazzo Innocuo, 2008. Limited First Edition. Bound in Wrappers. Signed by Lawrence Ferlinghetti. A chapbook of two poems, "Desire" & "At the Cafe des Poetes" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti. At fully a century old as of this writing, Ferlinghetti is truly a living icon of the Beat Generation & (way) beyond. An exquisite, hand-crafted Italian production, with text of both poems in English & Italian translation by Enzo Eric Toccaceli on opposite pages. As noted in the Italian-language colophon, this is one of a limited edition of 99 copies published during March 2008, hand-numbered in colophon & signed by Ferlinghetti on title page (characteristically his last name only). This is copy No. 19/99. Between the two poems is a drawing by Ferlinghetti, reproduced beautifully- & backwards! This illustration is also hand-numbered 19/99. Thick, rough-edged archival-quality paper leaves hand-sewn in board-wrappers. An extremely desirable late Ferlinghetti rarity, in perfect as-new condition inside & out. As new. [Item #3221]
