Bom-Crioulo. The Black Man and the Cabin Boy. Translated from Portuguese by E. A. Lacey.
San Francisco: Gay Sunshine Press, 1982 - Octavo. Original green cloth, titles gilt to spine and front. No jacket as issued. Very slight rubbing to tips, excellent condition. First English edition, first printing, very scarce cloth issue, publisher Winston Leyland's own copy with his ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. Winston Leyland (b.1940) was a leading figure in American LGBT publishing and won the Stonewall Book Award in 1980. He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, which was notable for its pioneering anthologies of gay writing from other cultures, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era. The vast majority of the clothbound copies of Gay Sunshine Press books were sold to libraries, and are consequently very scarce. Bom-Crioulo "was the first completely open gay novel to be published anywhere in the world (1895). The book provoked such controversy in Brazil that author was threatened with court proceedings; it has since become a classic and is still in print in that country." (Gay Sunshine bibliography). Gay Sunshine A22a. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
