Charlotte, NC: Main Street Rag Publishing Company, 2007. First Edition. Softcover. Signed by Thomas Rain Crowe. "From this oriel eyes swoon at the sight of/ lovers who can't make their way to this page./ This page of washed out and washed again dreams./ This covering off turbid ink with/ what was the elegiac thought of wind/ wandering around in a pen so far from words." ("Palimpsest," first stanza, pg. 19) A collection of poems by Thomas Rain Crowe, the acclaimed poet & publisher who was at the center of the Baby Beat Generation/ Second San Francisco Renaissance during the 1970s (see our book, Starting From San Francisco, Item No. 3071, Deluxe Edition No. 3075). With an insightful introduction by Jack Hirschman, the firebrand poet-translator-activist who was Crowe's important mentor during the BBG/ SSFR era & later was appointed the Poet Laureate of San Francisco. Hirschman is discussed extensively by Crowe in SFSF. Trade-format softcover original, first edition. On the title page, Crowe has hand-written his signature below his printed name in bold blue ink. An excellent compilation of Crowe's later work; with the collectible association & provenance of the poet himself. In very fine condition with only very slight rubbing & scratching (including light impression of writing on front cover not effecting image or text) to front, back covers & spine; a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at corners of a few page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #4037]
