The importance of BMR can hardly be overemphasized. It substantially defined much of the new post-war underground literary spirit of the day; and in retrospect, its editor was uncanny in recognizing talent; its table of contents being virtually a Who's Who of poets and writers who would later be seen as among the best of their generation. Very difficult now to assemble a complete run, and in this condition! The set. Q08097. Bookseller Inventory # Q08097
