Bukowski, Charles

Place:

Description:
Tan folder containing 41 broadsides and leaflets (of various sizes) laid in. Folder is 28.5x21.8 cm. (11¼x8½"). Limited to 150 copies. With a 1 page typed letter, signed from E.V. Griffith about this work. In the letter Griffith says “The correct number of items in the COFFIN portfolio is 41….but it is “ listed in some dealers’ catalogs as containing less. I suspect that the disparity is because two much-sought- after items---Fielding Dawson’s “The Canoe” and Larry Eigner’s “ God/ but the silence grows” are sometimes filched from the portfolio by dealers and sold seperately.” Contains three small broadsides by Bukowski: The Old Man on The Corner, His Wife the Painter, and Waste Basket, as well as the leaflet, The Paper on the Floor. Henry Miller and Raymond Souster are among the other contributors.
