LARGE, RARE POETRY BROADSIDE POEM by ROBERT CREELEY. KORE is one of CREELEY'S earliest and most discussed poems. This Large Broadside does not state Publisher, Publication Place or Publication Date. However, it is known to have been published by NATIVE DANCER PRESS, OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA, 1975, as noted by WorldCat and others. Broadside, 16" x 20" (40cm x 52cm). Printed on fine, RAG, watermarked paper. Printed on one side only. SIGNED and HAND NUMBERED by ROBERT CREELEY at the bottom. This is COPY 1 OF 26. Worldcat states that ONLY 13 OF THE 26 COPIES ARE NUMBERED AND SIGNED BY THE POET. If so, this is 1 of only 13 Signed and Numbered Copies. GOOD PLUS condition, creasing to the margins and edges from handling, some light creases from perhaps having been rolled, a light vertical crease from handling, perhaps from the printing process of this large broadside. Still a Solid, Sturdy Broadside, with no tears or chips. Would be look great framed. Scarce. A wonderful broadside from one of America's Great 20th Century Poets, Robert Creeley. Please Note The last image is my attempt to photograph the watermark, as it looks held up to the light. It didn't come out quite right, but I hope you can see how lovely it is.
