Totem
(n.p.), (n.p.), (n.d.). A broadside of this short ode to bears by Beekman, whose collection of poems by the same name was issued by Pennyroyal Press in 1984, with two wood engravings by Barry Moser. Although Moser is unnamed here, this appears to be one of those engravings. This copy is signed by Beekman and dated 1990. 14" x 17", matted and framed to 18-1/2" x 21-1/2". Fine. In addition to being a poet, Beekman also translated the 17th century naturalist Rumphius' Ambonese Herbal, published by Yale in six volumes in 2011. [#033155] SOLD
