Dreams. Peter Schjeldahl. Angel Hair Books. 1973.


Angel Hair Books, 1973. Item #810

Stapled wrappers. Cover by James Rosenquist. This is from an edition of 950 copies and a special edition of 50 copies numbered and signed by poet and artist. Schjeldahl recalls, "Looking back, I see Dreams as an experiment in labor-intensive automatic writing. I slept a lot back then, logging the surplus hours of shallow slumber when waking consciousness nuzzles dreaming like an impatient cat. I had trained myself to record my dreams in notes before I was fully awake. Later, I edited the notes." (The Angel Hair Anthology, p. 601) Minor shelf wear to wrappers, including small bump at top of back cover and text block and 1 in. discoloration. Very good, bright and fine within. The poet's first book.
