The Sorrows of Priapus
London, Calder & Boyars, (1970). The first British edition of this 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 fine, price-clipped dust jacket. [#012763] $20
