[Manuscript poem]: Cupcake to Lyrebird

Price: $900.00

Unbound. Poem measuring approximately 7" x 11", (reportedly deacidified) and matted with an approximately 4" x 5½" sepia-toned, gelatin silver photograph of Hollander. Holograph 29-line poem Inscribed at the end to fellow poet J.D. "Sandy" McClatchy: "Cupcake to Lyrebird / John to Sandy / May, 1976." Unexamined out of the mat but both appear fine with poem and photo likely easily removed. The opening for the poem has been cut in the mat into an irregular size (in order to accommodate the photo), but the leaf on which the poem is written remains regular and rectangular. In the upper left-hand corner of the manuscript is the ink number "25" perhaps suggesting that this poem was removed by Hollander from a larger group of manuscripts.
