Broadside, (18 X 6 in) printed in black on thin paper, folded, paper browned, fragile, closed tears at folds, good. Rare. This is the third appearance of the Merton poem. Dell'Isola F65 Bob Lax, editor of the Kerouac and other issues of PAX, was Thomas Merton's number one friend who left the New Yorker to join a circus troupe, and ended up living(almost more monastically than Merton) in Greece for many years. A student of Mark Van Doren, he and Thomas Merton were also influenced by their friend Ad Reinhardt. In his later years Robert Lax chose to live as a hermit on the island of Patmos in Greece where, in a quest for simplicity, he became a leading figure in literary minimalism. Bookseller Inventory #
