The Sorrows of Priapus
(Norfolk), New Directions, (1957). A collection of short aphoristic texts, with drawings by Ben Shahn. The first part is devoted to the Western cultural tradition, and the second focuses on pre-Columbian America, ultimately fusing the two to reach for a unified vision of the American cultural legacy. Fine in a near fine, sunned dust jacket. [#012762] $30
