        Kaddish and Other Poems

      City Lights, (San Francisco) 1961 - A volume in City Lights' Pocket Poets series. This is the first issue, with seven lines on the rear cover, as specified in Bill Morgan's 1995 bibliography, which superseded the earlier Ginsberg and City Lights bibliographies (Dowden, 1971; Cook, 1992) that identified the issue with the 10-line rear cover as the earliest printing. Morgan clarified the sequence, assigned dates to the earliest printings and gave the size of the print runs, none of which either of the earlier bibliographies were able to do. Includes Ginsberg's classic poems on psychedelics -- "Laughing Gas," (dedicated to Gary Snyder), "Mescaline" and "Lysergic Acid." One of the key books of the Beat Generation writers, and linking the Beats to the counterculture writers of the 1960s. Inscribed by Ginsberg, with the added mixed messages of an "AH," a small skull in a star, with crossbones, and a flower. Faint tanning and slight spine creasing; near fine in wrappers.
