Extensions Out: The Immeasurable Equation, Vol. II (First Edition, signed by Sun Ra)
Chicago: Ihnfinity, Inc. / Saturn Research, 1972. First Edition. First Edition. SIGNED by Sun Ra on the front wrapper. A followup volume to Sun Ra's first book of poetry, "The Immeasurable Equation," also issued by the publisher in 1972. The first volume is rare (we have seen it twice in 15 years); we have never seen an example of the second volume, though we were aware of its existence based on the extensive bibliography in "Sun Ra: The Immeasurable Equation" (James L. Wolf and Harmut Geerken, Waitawhile Press, 2005), which collects all of Sun Ra's poetry and prose, both printed and recorded. OCLC locates no copies in institutions. The two volumes complete Sun Ra's printed output for the 1970s, and the Wolf-Geerken bibliography notes only various reprints in the 1980s and early 1990s. This second volume consists mostly of poetry by Sun Ra, but with an interesting prose chapter in the middle titled "The Air Spiritual Man," omitted from later collections, that explains (if abstractly) some of Sun Ra's origins and philosophies. As with the poetry and performance known to us already by the great jazz musician and composer, the poems here involve interplanetary philosophical intrigue, sometimes meditative, sometimes very serious, and sometimes quite humorous and bright. Thick side-stitched card wrappers, mimeograph. 142 pages, with poems and the single prose piece together in alphabetical order, front wrapper and interior illustrations by Aye. Near Fine.
