About this Item

8vo. Stiff yellow wrappers. v, 37pp, (5pp), (8pp ads). Illustrations. Near fine. Handsome first edition of this nifty bibliography of private press volumes published in 1961. From the private library of JOHN BEECHER (1904-80), noted social protest poet and fine press publisher. His wife, artist Barbara Beecher (b. 1925), neatly inks "Marked Copy / See Pgs. 22 & 33" in red near the bottom of the front wrapper; a 3" X 3" yellow Post-It note affixed to the front flyleaf also notes "Rampart Press / See Pgs. 22 & 23 / B.M.B." in her hand. Page 23 lists Rampart Press and describes John Beecher's poetry collection "Phantom City" and his poetry leaflet "Homage to a Subversive." Finally, page 24 reproduces a Rampart Press colophon page featuring their Indian-inspired symbol, a piece of artwork by Barbara Beecher; on this page another 3" X 3" yellow Post-It note is affixed with "Rubber block / print" inked in her large hand. A nice association copy. Bookseller Inventory # 16689
