ISBN: 9780955340284
London, England: Tangerine Press, 2011. Limited Edition- Author/Artist Proof. Hardcover. Inscribed & signed to Charles Plymell by Michael Curran. "I've held on to the wheel alongside the road of progress like/ The grass, the weeds always half beaten down & sorrowful/ Dandelion pride under the feet of those who walk unawares." ("They Too May Embrace the Rattlesnake" by Charles Plymell, last stanza, pg. 11) This third number of the literary & arts anthology edited by Michael Curran & published in the UK by the venerable Tangerine Press features the above-quoted poem by Charles Plymell, the great American poet, printer, publisher & Legendary Literary Outlaw Extraordinaire. On the short title-dedication page, Curran has hand-inscribed & signed: "June 2011 (underlined)/ For Charles Plymell,/ with gratitude and respect,/ (signed) Michael Curran (underlined)." As noted in colophon, this copy is from a limited edition of 74 numbered & 26 lettered copies handbound in boards, published during May 2011 (just before the date of Curran's inscription to Plymell) . This copy is hand-noted as "A/P," or Author/Artist Proof, it is Plymell's own contributors' copy, obtained by us from his library. Also in this issue-volume are poems by Douglas Blazek, Gerald Nicosia (the acclaimed poet & critical biographer of Jack Kerouac) & many more; provocative prose by Will Self; illustrations by iconic underground comix master Robert Crumb & Jase Daniels; notes on contributors etc. A superb Tangerine production, & an outstanding rarity with this Curran-Plymell inscription, association & provenance. In very fine condition with only one short crease at upper spine-front cover corner (almost certainly a tiny flaw as issued); otherwise substantially mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #3465]
