Broadside with b&w illustration, printed on fine, watermarked, cream colored, rag paper, 12.5x17.5 inches. The watermark is an image of a hammer and anvil.
NEAR FINE condition. Some waviness to the edges where the broadside was "pulled" in the hand press printing process, as normal. A Lovely Broadside.
This broadside came from the estate of Dennis C. Turner, a San Francisco Doctor who was a Friend of Many Poets and Artists, and who was also a Fine-Printer and broadside publisher in his early days at Harvard when he was involved as one of the student printers at the LOWELL-ADAMS HOUSE PRINTERS. He was a longtime friend of Cecil Day Lewis, Albert Gelpi, and a number of other poets and writers. He died in 2013.
These LOWELL HOUSE, COLLEGE YARD (Harvard) broadsides from the mid 1960s, especially those by important American poets, are SCARCE.
