Verlag Udo Breger, 1971. Item #609
Single sheet folded once to make 4 pages. Not in Murray. Illustrated prospectus for Ian Hamilton Finlay’s The Olsen Excerpts that includes a very substantial 2 page description of the project by Finlay dated 9 July 1971. He notes, "The fact that the title, 'The Olsen Excerpts', invokes the name of the poet Olson (with an 'o'), is entirely deliberate, for I like to bring together areas of culture which are usually separate, and there is also the fact that Olson (with an 'o') drew much of his material from the Boston fisheries." Well, Gloucester, but, close. A work in itself, this prospectus lists other projects from Verlag Udo Breger. Very fine.
