Secret History of the Dividing Line.

Telephone Books, 1978. Item #3726

Perfect-bound wrappers. Cover drawing from The Practice of Perspective, by Jean Dubrueil, London, 1765. Supported by a National Endowment for the Humanities grant, typeset by Ed Hogan at Aspect Composition, and printed by the New England Free Press in Somerville, MA.


While poems are mostly centered and presented in standard format, some examples of typographical uniqueness occur, with overset text that exceeds the physical space of the page.


This is from an edition of 750 copies, of which 26 are lettered A to Z and signed by the poet. This is from the regular edition. There is a small white paint smudge to back cover, along with an approx. 1 in. brown stain along the fore-edge of the latter half of the text block and a slight bend to the lower edge of the back cover. Overall very good plus.
