I Watched the World Glide Effortlessly Bye and Other Pieces

Brautigan, Richard

[Berkeley & Forest Knolls]

Burton Weiss & James Musser



[48] pp. (8vo) quarter cloth and tan boards, gilt spine. Letter F of 26 deluxe lettered copies with bumper sticker.

Previously unpublished stories and poems written by Brautigan in the 1950s and allegedly submitted to both Random House and Charles Scribners publishers in hopes they would publish them as a collection. Neither publisher accepted the work. The book includes three stories and three poems, all of which were collected in The Edna Webster Collection of Undiscovered Writings in 1999. All the lettered copies of the volume were published with a bumper sticker upon which the poem Phantom Kiss is printed, which is included here. Only 32 of the bumper stickers were printed and each was numbered, this being No. 16. Scarce.
