BELIEF & TECHNIQUE FOR MODERN PROSE
San Francisco: Cloud House, [n.d. but ca.1976]. First Printing of this edition. 12mo. (14.25cm); illustrated card wrappers, saddle-stitched; [8]pp; illus. Some toning along spine-fold, else Near Fine. Elusive chapbook reproducing Kerouac's 30 "essentials" regarding his Spontaneous Prose method, which were first published in the Spring, 1959 issue of Evergreen Review (Charters C44). Produced by The Cloud House, a live-work space for poets in San Francisco's Mission District, run by Steven "Kush" Kushner and his wife Hedy. Though the list made two additional appearances in print after Evergreen Review (A Casebook on the Beat, 1961; New American Story, 1965), the Cloud House imprint marks the probable first separate edition, likely published around the time of the identically-titled broadside printed by the Phoenix Book Shop for Santa Cruz High School (1976). A key work by the Beat Generation author, ranking with Ginsberg's improvised poetics, Burroughs's cut-up method, Corso's automaticism, McClure's beast language, and Ferlinghetti's voice of the fourth person singular. Scarce; OCLC finds 3 copies only (Morgan Lib., UC Berkeley, UVA). Not in Charters.
