Title: The Minority of One: Volume IV, Number 5 (...
Publisher: The Minority of One May 1962, Passaic, NJ
Publication Date: 1962
Edition: 1st Edition
4to. Self-cover. 16pp. Very good. Mild bit of edgewear and bit of age toning, else tight and attractive. Nice issue of this "Independent Monthly for an American Alternative Dedicated to the Eradication of All Restrictions on Thought" whose board of sponsors included the likes of Albert Schweitzer and Linus Pauling. It was noted for its leftist leanings and early opposition to the Vietnam War. This issue includes Linus Pauling's "The Dirt Work of 'Clean' A-Bombs," the editor's expose about Nazi officials still holding diplomatic positions, and the poem "A Meditation on the Flag 1862-1962" by noted social protest poet and fine press printer JOHN BEECHER (1904-80) -- whose personal copy this is. His wife, artist Barbara Beecher (born 1925) boldly pencils "MARKED COPY / See Pg 11" near the top of the front wrapper. A typically fiery free verse Beecher production, this poem compares Barbara Fritchie's Civil War flag incident with the political situation of 1962, closing with: "Haul down the stars and stripes! Run up the flag / we really serve -- black, with the skull and bones!" A lovely contributor's copy. Bookseller Inventory # 32163
