The Floating Bear #17

New York: LeRoi Jones / Diane Di Prima, [January 1962].

Price: $225.00

Softcover. Magazine. (12)pp. Single sheets printed both sides and secured with a staple. Fine. An influential mimeograph published by Jones and di Prima featuring some of the most important poets of the 20th Century. Unlike other magazines, this so-called "newsletter" was distributed via a mailing list, many of which were noted poets, journalists, critics, publishers and artists. For this reason, most copies were hand addressed or affixed with a mailing label and stamp, and folded for mailing. This copy is remarkably pristine with no writing, stamp, or label. This issue features contributions from Charles Olson, Joel Oppenheimer, Hubert Shelby, Jr., Paul Metcalf, Max Feinstein, Jerry Benjamin, and Fred Herko.
