The Paris Review No. 34 (Spring-Summer 1965) with: Bonus Issues

Paris, France: Sadruddin Aga Khan, 1965. First Printings. Softcovers. This important vintage number of the legendary literary journal then-chiefly edited by George Plimpton features contributions by three primary poets of the Beat Generation: "Hop, Skip, and Jump" & "Poem" by Gary Snyder; "What Are You Saying," "Sounds in the Night" & "The Spoiled Son" by John Wieners; & "To the Muse" by Philip Whalen. Also in this issue, an in-depth interview with Simone de Beauvoir, the great French writer & philosopher, conducted by Madeleine Gobeil; another of the great Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko (more of an essay with quotes) by Olga Carlisle; a portfolio of artworks by Jean Tinguely along with a shorter interview conducted by Laura Mathews; & much more poetry & fiction including the poem "Mother" by Paul Caroll. Along with this key issue, we are all-but-throwing-in copies of Vol. 9 No. 33 (Winter-Spring 1965) & Vol. 8 No. 30 (Summer-Fall 1963). Both of these issues are in merely fair-to-good condition according to our standards, with extensive rubbing, creasing, staining & markings at covers, spines & edges of text block; though the interiors are fine. Issue No. 33, the direct predecessor to the featured No. 34, is of particular interest, featuring an interview with playwright Lillian Hellman; transcript of a symposium including the great surrealist Man Ray; the poem "Anger" by Robert Creeley & more. But it is issue No. 34 described above that is the plum of this bundle for our Beat-centric purposes, as well as for its fine condition with only mild rubbing, browning, creasing & occasional spotting to front, back covers & spine; mild wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same. Interior fine with only some creasing at/near upper corners of last ten or so page leaves; tiny bumps at corners of more of same. Complete, as are the other issues, with subscription card sheets, wonderful contemporary ads, etc. Trade-format softcovers in sewn bindings. Fine; Fair-to-Good. [Item #3679]
