Oakland, CA: Inkblot Publications, 1986. First Edition. Softcover. "My Morocco was always loving and funny. THE DEATH OF LOVE is really called MOROCCO TWO and is dedicated to Josef von Sternberg, Marlene Dietrich and Gary Cooper. It came about because of movie commitments & hopes..." (author's introduction, in its entirety) A screenplay by Brion Gysin (1916-1986), the great artist, writer & raconteur closely associated with William S. Burroughs in Tangiers (where the action takes place in this work), Paris & elsewhere. Issued by the publishing arm of Inkblot Magazine, a literary journal. Trade-format softcover original, copyrighted 1971 & 1986 but never published until the latter year in which Gysin died. From the library of Jim McCrary, a poet & educator who was a friend & associate of WSB during his later years in Lawrence, Kansas. A rare late Gysin collectible with significant association & provenance. Indeed, it is quite probable that this copy was handled by WSB himself in the company of McCrary. In relatively fine condition with mild rubbing, browning & spotting to front, back covers & spine; mild wear & a few tiny bumps, small creases at edges & corners of same; several small-to-medium circular & semicircular brown (coffee?!) stains at/near side edge of front cover that decreasingly bleed onto inner front cover & first three page leaves; mild-to-moderate rubbing & spotting to edges of text block. Interior very fine except for decreasing stains noted above; tiny bumps at corners of a few page leaves. Fine. [Item #3577]
