Ritual: A Book of Primitive Rites and Events
NY, A Great Bear Pamphlet, 1966. Inscribed by Rothenberg to Clayton [Eshleman] & Caryl, "the pleasure of your company. Love/ Jerry. Postdated: 8/11/79." Near fine in stapled wrappers. A nice association: by the time of the inscription, Rothenberg and Eshleman had been friends for nearly two decades; both shared an interest not only in poetry but, in particular, in archiac poetry and ethnopoetics, such as those indigenous texts that formed the underpinnings for Rothenberg's adaptations in this volume.
