Sergei Yesenin 1895-1925
(n.p.), Sumac Press, [ca. 1971]. Broadside poem, 6" x 9", memorializing Yesenin, and dedicated "to D.G.," Harrison's co-founder of Sumac, Dan Gerber. This is the first poem in Harrison's collection Letters to Yesenin. One of 33 copies only according to Harrison, although Gerber has put the number between 80 and 100 copies; still, one of the rarest Harrison "A" items. Unmarked, but from the library of Peter Matthiessen, a longtime friend of Harrison. And together with Dan Gerber's own Sumac Press broadside, Sources. The Gerber broadside, also 6" x 9", has a little edge-foxing, otherwise both items are fine. [#032283] $850
