Telephone, no. 9. Fall 1973. Maureen Owen.

Telephone, no. 9. Fall 1973.

Item #2614

Saddle-stitched wrappers, 14 x 8.5 in. Cover and back cover by Paula North, telephone drawing by Barbara Knight, and brush and ink drawings by Lauren Owen.


The saddle-stitched binding marks a shift in format for the magazine, as publication shifted from The Poetry Project to The Print Center, Inc., in Brooklyn, NY. This issue also marks the first time that no collaborative works appear in the collection by multiple authors; a hallmark of the mimeograph issues.


Select contributors include: Keith Abbott, Regina Beck, Rachelle Bijou, Donna Brook, Rebecca Brown, Susan Gallagher, Merrill Gilfillan, Ted Greenwald, James Gustafson, Yuki Hartman, Charles Haseloff, Lyn Hejinian, Susan Howe, Ruth Krauss, Charles North, Chuck Ortleb, Lauren Owen, Catherine Petroski, Tony Towle, Ken Tucker, Anne Waldman, and Joseph White.

A few minor scuffs, including rumpling near bottom edge (seemingly as a result of printer error in cutting the papers), else near fine.

Price: $50.00
