PATCHEN, Kenneth
The Memoirs of a Shy Pornographer
New Directions, New York, 1945. First edition, first impression. Clippings on the rear endpapers else near fine, with tattered remnants of the dustwrapper (lacking the front panel and front flap). Book label of Greenwich Village artist Arthur Sturcke on the title page. Inscribed by Patchen: "for Arthur signed with great admiration & affection on this publication day. Aug. 20, '45. Kenneth." An excellent association, the text on page 101 of this book includes Patchen's dialogue, in a discussion of modern art: "All right, what about Kamrowski? - or Lee Bell? - or Jackson Pollack? - or Arthur Sturcke?" [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Between the Covers-Rare Books, Inc. ABAA [Gloucester City, NJ, U.S.A.]
