Father Death Blues
Aarhus, Denmark, Grafisk Værksted, 1983. Broadside in English and Danish of Ginsberg's poem, translated "rather freely" by Dan Turell. This is Copy 31 of 100 copies and is signed by Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky, and Steven Taylor, who provided a dozen bars of musical notation. Quite uncommon apparently, even more so than the small limitation would suggest: OCLC locates only one copy worldwide, at the University of North Carolina; an examination of the finding aid for the Allen Ginsberg papers at Stanford University finds the manuscript of the poem but no copy of this broadside. 23-1/2" x 17-1/2". Rolled, else fine. [#033457] SOLD
