Verlag Kiepenheure & Witsch, 1970. Item #1043
Sewn in printed wrappers. Translated into German by Peter Behrens. Collages by Martha Diamond, drawings by Rick Veitch, with various other illustrations by the author. Frontispiece photograph of the author as “der junge Luis,” by Lorenz Gude. First edition. This work was later published in English by Full Court Press; this copy is inscribed, in German, to Ron Padgett, close friend to the writer and one the editors at Full Court. Padgett and Veitch later collaborated on the novel, Antlers in the Treetops (Coach House, 1973). Though the interior is slightly toned, this is a beautiful copy, crisp and sharp, very near fine.
