click for a larger image of item #17274, Typed Note Signed to Diane di Prima 1996. May 9, 1996. An aerogramme to Diane di Prima, written from Japan, agreeing to something, with the exception being that she leave off the "respectfully yours." Snyder adds: "the cherry blossoms having departed for the Other Shore, the azalea blossoms send back their answer." He closes: "yours fraternally in the workers & peasants struggle." Folded in fourths for mailing, and mildly edgetorn in opening; very near fine. A wonderful association between two of the most important poets of postwar America. [#017274] $475
1991. A two-page photocopy of Snyder's bio, recounting travels, influences, jobs and interests. With brief bibliographical checklist. Folded in half; near fine. From the collection of Clayton Eshleman, and probably given by Snyder to Eshleman who would have introduced him at his 1996 reading in Ypsilanti. [#030821] $60

Rippling to bottom page edges; very good in wrappers. [#015405] $20
