Evergreen Review Vol. 6 No. 23 (March - April 1962)

New York, NY: Evergreen Review, Inc., 1962. First Printing. Softcover. This vintage number of the legendary literary, cultural & arts journal chiefly edited by Barney Rosset features the poem "Now France" by the great "Bastard Angel" Harold Norse (1916-2009), among our favorite Beat-&-Beyond, William S. Burroughs-inspired-&-certified authors (pgs. 110-111). Also in this issue is the short play with drawings "Standing on a Street Corner," a unique work in the oeuvre of the canonical Beat Generation poet Gregory Corso; a lengthy, impassioned article on the obscenity trial of Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer (published the previous year by the brave Rosset's Grove Press) by Donovan Bess; a review-essay on the now-classic recordings of John Lewis & his Modern Jazz Quartet by Martin Williams & much more. With photographs, notes on contributors, contemporary ads (including a list of then-new or recent City Lights Books releases). Trade-format softcover in sewn binding, complete with subscription promotion including sheet of removable cards. Another rich & significant issue in this most collectible series, in fine condition with mild rubbing, browning, faint creasing & scratching to front, back covers & spine; mild wear & some tiny bumps at edges & corners of same; very light rubbing, browning & scratching to edges of text block; one tiny spot-mark at upper edge of same near right edge-corner. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at corners of a few page leaves. Fine. [Item #4401]
