Paris, France: Sadruddin Aga Khan, 1967. First Printing. Softcover. This vintage number of the legendary literary journal then-edited by George Plimpton features an in-depth interview with the canonical Russian-American novelist Vladimir Nabokov conducted by Herbert Gold, with two photographs- one a contemporary portrait in Switzerland where he was living at the time, & from 1937 in the company of distinguished literary figures in Paris. Also in this issue are contributions of poetry & prose by John Ashbery, Bill Berkson, Tom Clark (who was Poetry Editor of the Review at this time), Kenward Elmslie, Barbara Guest, Kenneth Koch, Ron Padgett, Philip Whalen & more. With a literary-artwork portfolio by Gianfranco Baruchello, notes on contributors, contemporary ads etc. Trade-format softcover in sewn binding, complete with intact sheet of subscription cards. An exceptionally rich, varied issue in this most collectible series, in particularly very fine condition: Very light rubbing to front, back covers & spine; a bit of wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same; faint vertical creasing & waving at spine (the result of sewn binding signatures); very light rubbing & sparse spotting to edges of text block. Interior very fine with only miniscule bumps to corners of a few page leaves; otherwise substantially mint. Very Fine. [Item #3723]
