Typed Postcard Signed to Richard Seaver
1961. Postmarked February 8, 1961. Written to Dick Seaver at Grove Press, telling him that he sent 19 "pix" of Burroughs to John Fles for an Esquire article. Signed in type by Ginsberg ("Allen"), after which he adds suggestions for obtaining images of a Tibetan Ghost Trap and an elephant mandala from Stanford professor Frederick Spiegelberg to go with his "LSD poem" that Barney [Rosset] has accepted. In a 1966 Paris Review interview, Ginsberg expounded at some length on the mandala imagery referred to in this card, including the Tibetan mandalas of Professor Spiegelberg. Postal marks across top half of text, not affecting legibility; near fine. [#029386] SOLD
