Rapport One. A Chapbook Series.

By Burke, Tom and Tony Petrovsky. (editors).

Amherst, New York.: Slow Loris Press.. Good. 1971. Soft Cover. 8vo - 21 x 16.5 cm.; (2) - 51 - (7) pp. Blue wraps with purple and green lettering and art work in a saddle stapled binding. The first issue of this journal and printed in a limited edition of 500 copies of 25 were signed - not this one though. The poets are Philip Dow (1 poem), Robert Hass (6 poems), William Jungels (3 poems), and John Logan (3 poems). Printed on a very nice beige woven paper with watermarked paper serving as the "end-papers". The major flaw is that a poetic rodent has chewed off the head of the spine and in all that chewing, didn't touch a single letter of the text. Perhaps not so poetic as first appearances would have us believe. But then we don't know what the rodent received for we don't know what he was given. The shipping cost for this small item will be reduced after it is ordered. .
