New York, NY: Evergreen Review, Inc., 1967. First Printing. Glued Wrappers. This vintage number of the legendary literary, cultural and arts journal chiefly edited by Barney Rosset features the poem "Men's Crapper" by Beat-&-Beyond cult favorite Charles Bukowski (pg. 75). Also in this issue published during the height of the 1960s counterculture are an opinion piece by the great journalist Nat Hentoff; three poems by LeRoi Jones (pre-Amiri Baraka), an interview with Jones in the wake of the Newark, New Jersey riots conducted by Saul Gottlieb; transcript o'God's Judgment of White America," an incendiary speech delivered by Malcolm X on December 1, 1963 in the wake of President John F. Kennedy's assassination; "Young Men Waking at Daybreak," a poem by the canonical American playwright Tennessee Williams & much more. With many exemplary graphics & illustrations throughout, letters, contemporary ads (including for the release of The Doors' second album, Strange Days opposite copyright/ contents page). A very significant issue in this always most collectible series, from the very eye of the turbulent, divisive, explosive, dizzying (like now) 1960s.
