Book Description Waldport (Oregon), Intide press, 1945, 1945. 16/24 cm., 40 pp.n.c. Broché, titre imprimé, recto-verso sur pièce de titre. Véritable édition originale (tirage limité à 1950 ex.) qui fait suite à une première édition d'environ 30 copies qui dut être totalement détruite suite à un problème technique rencontré par l'imprimeur. Conçu par Kemper Nomland Jr., le livre a été conçu dans un camp d'objecteurs de conscience en caractères Futura rouge et noirs. La couleur des bandes verticales ocre a été imprimée par Franklin Press à Corvallis Orégon . Plaquette très fragile ici dans un état très corect, le "dos" est fendu en bas et en haut, deux petites déchirures en marge au recto (photo), le corps d'ouvrage est en bel état. Rare. Franc-tireur de la littérature américaine, le romancier et poète américain Kenneth Patchen (1911-1972) a toute sa vie refusé toute filiation : beats, surréaliste, Dada. Il était fermement pacifiste et lutta contre la participation américaine dans la seconde guerre mondiale. Ne se contentant pas d’écrire, il a aussi lu ses poèmes à haute voix, accompagnés de jazzmens comme Charles Mingus (il n’existe malheureusement aucun enregistrement de ces cessions). Il à très tôt créé ce qu’il nommait ses "picture poems" , peuplés de figures animales ou anthropomorphiques naïves, les "picture poems" de Patchen privilégient les couleurs vives. Le texte, au tracé cursif un peu enfantin, est la plupart du temps absurde et en complet décalage avec l’image. La plaquette que nous présentons ici fait partie des premiers travaux de Patchen et laisse entrevoir le soin et l'originalité de l'Auteur dans la conception matérielle de ses livres.

Book Description Untide Press, Waldport, Oregon, 1945. Condition: Very Good. First edition, first impression. Wrappers with applied title piece. Some tape shadows to the wrappers, staples pulled through, else a very good copy. The first printing of 1800 copies was rendered unfit for release through a printer's error. All were destroyed except for about 70 copies, which were distributed with the second impression, with no known differentiation. Eventually 23 copies of the 70 copies of the first impression came into Patchen's hand, and he created a limited edition of 11 copies, with a hand-lettered limitation page (where Patchen relates this sequence of events). This is copy number 2 of the 11, and is Signed by the author. Additionally Inscribed by the author: "for Arthur, a good human being whose friend I am proud to be. Kenneth. June 21, 1946." The recipient was Arthur Sturcke, a now little-remembered painter and pacifist who exhibited in the 1930s and 1940s, and who did much to help and support Patchen. Patchen mentions him in his book Memoirs of a Shy Pornographer in a dialogue discussing art and artists: "And what about DeNiro? There is a serious young painter. All right what about Kamrowski? -- Or Lee Bell? Or Jackson Pollock? -- Or Arthur Sturcke?" Beautifully printed small collection of poems printed in a conscientious objectors' camp. Rare.
