Harrison, Jim
SERGEI YESENIN 1895 - 1925 [caption title]
The Sumac Press, [Fremont, MI], 1971. Octavo broadside (23 x 15 cm). Very near fine. First separate edition, the slightly more common state printed in black ink. However, this copy exhibits a feature the bibliographers identify with the red-ink variety: the period is missing at the end of the final line, after "noose." Harrison inscribed some copies of this broadside with an indication that only 33 copies were printed. However, Orr and Torrey cite Dan Gerber -- the printer and Sumac collaborator - - as the authority for likelihood that between 80 and 100 copies were printed. Although some copies were signed by the author and/or printer, many, like the example in hand, were not signed. Still, in any form, one of Harrison's least common publications. ORR & TORREY A.8.a.
Bookseller: William Reese Company - Literature, ABAA [New Haven, CT, U.S.A.]
