About this Item

Illustration by Andre Miguel. 8vo. Stiff blue wrappers. (4pp). Fine. First (and presumably sole) printing of this little verse collection printed in Japanese characters, limited to 100 numbered copies (this #34). Inside front wrappers is inscribed by the poet to noted social protest poet and fine press publisher JOHN BEECHER (1904-80): "To Mr / John Beecher, / Yours / Yu Sawa." Laid in is a 14¼" X 10" mimeographed review copy notice, a sheet of delicate high-acid low-quality newsprint-type paper bearing the heading "Beard at Night / (First poem of this collection poems)," consisting of the full text of this poem in English in the poet's hand. Despite poor quality paper and being folded into quarters, this fragile inclusion is in superb condition. Most unusual. Bookseller Inventory # 16556
