Author: Charles Bukowski
Title: If We Take
Publisher: Black Sparrow Press
Description: Inscribed by Bukowski to Beat poet Harold Norse and dated 12-27-69, one day after publication. Bukowski has added a "Buk" self-portrait to the inside front cover. "For Hal Norse, We've both been through the fire, dear friend, and there's more to come-more fire more o so much more fire, and we can only wonder if we will kill ourselves first, or they. No matter-they will never know. Yrs, Charles Bukowski." Hailed by William Carlos Williams as "the best poet of your generation", Harold Norse (1916-2009) was in the vanguard of bohemian and gay subcultures for over 50 years. While living in the Beat Hotel with Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, and William S. Burroughs, Norse helped develop the "cut-up" literary technique that Burroughs would go on to use for Naked Lunch. Harold Norse edited Penguin Modern Poets 13, which included the poetry of Philip Lamantia and Charles Bukowski, as well as Norse's own poetry. This 1969 anthology was Bukowski's first major introduction to the literary establishment. A superb association copy. Handsewn with green thread in green paper wrappers, with light spotting to the front cover. One of 350 copies. Krumhansl 31a. $2500.00
