Stories & Illustrations by Harley
n/p: Charlatan Press, 1976. First Printing. Hardcover. Fine. Among the rarest & most unusual collectors' items related to Allen Ginsberg, primary poet of the Beat Generation. Harley Flanagan, a nine-year-old boy living on the lower east side of NYC with his hippie mother known as "Rosebud," drew & described his impressions of their travels to Morocco in "The Shopkeeper and his Donkey," & an imaginative time-travel story in "The Sabre Tooth Tiger." These two works comprise this slim hardbound volume in thick illustrated boards. Ginsberg knew Harley & his mother, they had lived on a farm together (presumably his East Hill Farm in Cherry Valley, NY), & wrote a brief introduction in his characteristic prose-poetry dated May 6, 1976 on the first page. Below the introduction is a facsimile of Ginsberg's signature. Flanagan grew up to become a founding member of the post-punk hardcore band The Cro Mags. "His sense of perspective is vast/His choise (sic) of details.../is bold and smart- I'm proud to know/he is a member of the Sensitive Family."(from Ginsberg's introduction) One of the scarcest Ginsberg-related items. In fine condition with only slight rubbing of front & back boards, interior very fine.
