Item Details

Preface, original typescript of Duncan's preface to Jack Spicer's One Night Stand & Other Poems, signed "Robert Duncan / San Francisco CA 94110" and dated "June 1980" in another hand.

A fine authorial typescript of Duncan's Preface to Spicer's posthumous collection published by Don Allen's Grey Fox Press in 1980. The typescript contains numerous changes in Duncan's hand, to punctuation, capitalization, and word-breaks, in addition to a few additions and deletions of words. These corrections and revisions in the typescript prepared for the 1980 Grey Fox Press publication were carried over to the Preface as it appears in Duncan's A Selected Prose, published by New Directions in 1995. Signs of occasional light use, otherwise the typescript is in fine condition. 4to, 15 leaves, rectos only.
