Crucifix in a Deathhand; New Poems 1963-65: A Loujon Press Award Book . . .with etchings by Noel Rockmore

New York: Lyle Stuart, (1965). First edition. 4to, 101pp; original wrappers. Very faint sun to spine; extremities a trifle rubbed, excellent. Item #204883

One of 3100 copies in the edition, signed and dated by Bukowski at the colophon. Loosely inserted is a separately printed broadsheet, printed on both sides with blurbs about the book obtained from various friends and allies of Loujon Press proprietors Jon and Louise "Gypsy Lou" Webb, including Henry Miller, Kenneth & Miriam Patchen, Jonathan Williams, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Russell Edson, Kenneth Rexroth and others. A book showing the Loujon hallmarks of unusual handset typography, various stocks and colors of paper, and colophonic information of dubious reliability.
