Septuagenarian Stew (uncorrected Proof) with Card to Lee Hendrix, Signed By John Martin

Santa Rosa, Ca: Black Sparrow Press, 1990. Octavo. Item #031622

Uncorrected Proof copy. 375 pages. The uncorrected proof was mailed to Lee Hendrix (co-owner of Either/Or Books of Hermosa Beach) and signed by John Martin publisher of Black Sparrow Press. What makes it interesting is there are 15 places where she detected typos (but not suggesting Bukowski's unique style be changed). A good example is on page 58 line 15 where canie was typed for came, also page 87 where on 17 Buk had typed Torm instead of Tom. His note mentions three New Year's booklets of Bukowski which he suggested she might give to her best customers. The booklets are being listed separately and not included in the uncorrected proof copy. [Krumhansl 114a note p. 132, 4th paragraph] An unknown number of perfect bound copies of the uncorrected proofs were printed in light tan wrappers with black lettering and rules across the front cover. When the corrected edition was issued, a review slip was laid in. small wrinkle to head of spine. A near fine copy.

Price: $375.00
