About this Item

Stapled, pictorial wraps. I think this issue dates from 1957, though it is not dated. Notes in pencil on margins of front by former owner. Small smudges, chips, and corner creases to wraps, with light toning throughout. Signed by Amiri Baraka (LeRoi Jones) on title page in 1985; he dated the signature. This issue includes "Preface to a Twenty-Volume Suicide Note" by LeRoi Jones. This was one of Baraka's earliest journal publications, as recounted in his autobiography: "[T]he publication was encouraging, even though who the hell read 'The Naked Ear' which was only half the size of a regular paperback but you could see it in some of the bookstores." A penciled booksellers' note on title page states that this was Baraka's first professionally published work. A fascinating association between Baraka and Crews. Also features early work by Larry Eigner, and a poem by Agnes Martin. ; B&W Illustrations; 24mo 5" - 6" tall; Unpaginated (12 pp.) pages; Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 14325
