Columbus Square Journal.

Angel Hair Books, 1976. Item #815

Perfect bound wrappers. Cover by Philip Guston, with author photograph by Elsa Dorfman on back cover. Bill Corbett writes that on a visit from Lewis Warsh and Bernadette Mayer in 1975, "They asked to see what I had been writing. I showed them the journal, then thuddingly titled Columbus Day A Year. They read the manuscript at once, announced they would publish it when complete, and that is exactly what they did. Philip Guston drew the book's cover and in doing so titled it after our home address Columbus Square Journal. Perfect." (The Angel Hair Anthology, p. 582) This is from an edition of 1000 copies. Inscribed by Corbett to Steve Clay.
