Evergreen Review Vol. 13 No. 64 (March 1969)

New York, NY: Evergreen Review, Inc., 1969. First Printing. Glued Wrappers. This vintage number of the legendary literary, cultural & arts journal chiefly edited by Barney Rosset features the poem "In San Francisco" by none other than our good friend, mentor & Ultimate Literary Outlaw Charles Plymell. Lavishly illustrated & with border-motifs by William Rowe, the poem describes Plymell's experiences with & impressions of Neal Cassady et al. during his famous 1960s SF residency- a nexus-bridge from the late Beat Generation into the flowering psychedelic counterculture (pgs. 41-43). Also in this issue: Fiction by Herbert Gold & others; intense & illuminating reportage by Nat Hentoff on American urban community activism, & Leo Skir on his visit to Jerusalem less than two years following the Six-Day War; a musical reminiscence by the great Jazz singer-composer Jon Hendricks; an early critical article on contemporary art in comparison to theater by the now-venerable critic & biographer John Lahr (son of Cowardly Lion Bert) & much more. With many other far-out graphics, illustrations & risqué cartoons throughout; letters; & contemporary ads (including a two-page subscription promotion for Evergreen Club with now-collectible Grove Press productions of "...powerful adult books..."). A deep & desirable issue, so exemplary of the final bright-sunset year of the 1960s decade, in this highly collectible & significant series. In relatively fine condition with mild rubbing, scratching & faint creasing to front, back covers & spine; mild wear, tiny bumps & creases at thin edges & corners of same; moderate rubbing, browning & spotting to edges of text block. Interior very fine with light browning to mostly blank margins of page leaves; tiny bumps at corners of a few of same. Fine. [Item #4566]
