Chicago for Edwin Denby.

Angel Hair Books, 1969. Item #812

Sewn in stiff card wrappers with attached blue dust jacket; published in Bolinas. Inscribed to Larry [Fagin] by Lewis Warsh, July 1971. This is copy “D” from four special copies issued hors commerce in larger format printed on special paper and with hand colored initial capitals; there is also an edition of 200 copies in yellow wrappers. Warsh recalls: "Tom Clark and I wrote Chicago in a sweet burst of reciprocal energy. He was the stable family man while I was on the go—somehow the two states of being meshed and created a third place we couldn't get to except on the page. For a moment it seemed possible to be free and stable at the same time." (Angel Hair Anthology, p. 606) Slight toning due to glue on cover label, with minor shelf wear to jacket; interior bright and clean.
