    Broadside, printed on fine heavy stock paper, deckled top and bottom edges, 15x22 inches.

    FINE condition, bright and beautiful.

    From the Broadside: "Within a very few years of the publication of my Collected Poems (1938)... I renounced further trying the way of poetry... saying: I would write no more poems - and I wrote no more poems... (however) I wrote for (a close friend), in the 1978 Christmastime, a poem, marked as a poem for him only, giving it the title HOW A POEM CAME TO BE. I kept no copy of this privately written and given poem, and forgot the writing and the giving of it... I chanced, recently, to tell my friend of receiving a request for a poem to publish in broadside form from the Lord John Press, indicating my feeling some surprise that Mr. Yellin, the Press's director, should not have been aware that FOR FORTY YEARS there had been NO NEW POEMS of mine. But my friend reminded me that about a year ago there HAD been a new poem - the one I wrote for him; and he urged me to let him release it to me from its private status of being a poem for him only... I give here the poem, given him, to be out in the world..."

    LAURA RIDING JACKSON, 1901-1991, was an iconoclastic American Poet. She left New England at the age of 25 to live with ROBERT GRAVES and his wife, Nancy Nicholson. The triangle did not suit her, and Laura Riding tried to commit suicide in 1927. Thereafter Robert Graves divorced his wife and lived together with Laura Riding in Majorca, France, England and Switzerland, and even went with her when she returned to the United States. They bitterly broke up in 1939. In 1941 Laura Riding Jackson renounced poetry, married Schuyler B. Jackson, and lived quietly with him in Wabasso, Florida, until her death in 1991. In the 60s, 70s and 80s she wrote a number of pieces explaining her reasons for renouncing poetry, but no poetry. This is apparently THE ONLY POEM written by Laura Riding Jackson since 1941.

    You can read much more about LAURA RIDING on Wikipedia and elsewhere on the Internet.

There is a tiny pin hole near the top and bottom which I believe was part of the hand-printing process. A Bright and 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 ADAMS & LOWELL HOUSE, HARVARD YARD broadsides from the mid 1960s, especially those by important American poets, are SCARCE.

    The theatrical posters are folded, which is how one sheets were normally sent to theaters. Both have their original large ink stamp on the blank backside (visible when folded) "ROMEO & JULIET / 1 SH. DOMESTIC 69/12" and "ROMEO & JULIET / 1 SH. B 69/2".

    The 1 Sheet "Domestic 69/2" is in FAIR condition, there is creasing and numerous pin holes at the corners, pin holes to various places along the margins and edges, a 1 inch closed tear to one corner, and a pea size hole at the intersection of the center folds, otherwise still solid, clean, clear and bright.

    The 1 Sheet "B 69/2" is also in FAIR condition, there is creasing and numerous pin holes at the corners, pin holes to various places along the margins and edges, and a pea size hole at the intersection of the center folds, otherwise still solid, clean, clear and bright.

    Two rare original 1 sheet posters of this young, sensual take on Shakespeare. Both would look great mounted and/or framed.

    About ROMEO & JULIET (excerpted from Wikipedia):

    ******Romeo and Juliet is a 1968 British-Italian romantic tragedy film based on the play of the same name by William Shakespeare.

    The film was directed and co-written by Franco Zeffirelli, and stars Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey. It won Academy Awards for Best Cinematography and Best Costume Design; it was also nominated for Best Director and Best Picture, making it the last Shakespearean film to be nominated for Best Picture to date. Laurence Olivier spoke the film's prologue and epilogue and reportedly dubbed the voice of the Italian actor playing Lord Montague, but was not credited in the film.

    The most financially successful film adaptation of a Shakespeare play at the time of its release, it was popular among teenagers partly because it was the first film to use actors who were close to the age of the characters from the original play. Several critics also welcomed the film enthusiastically.******

    These two folded one sheets will be sent folded, as is their normal state.
