Dangling in the Tournefortia (Signed with artwork)

Santa Barbara: Black Sparrow Press, 1981. First edition. Number 52 of 100 copies signed by the author on the limitation page, with an original oil painting from Charles Bukowski bound in after title page. A Fine copy in nearly Fine publisher's acetate. Cream boards with bright blue tree illustration and dark blue with grey and orange speckled cloth backstrip, maintaining paper title to spine. Slightest toning to board edges. Publisher's acetate with expected scuffing. Complete with blue end papers, tissue guard sheet and abstract painting by Bukowski tipped in after title page. A clean and bright copy, appearing virtually unread. The most limited issue of the first edition.

A ferocious collection of poems returning to some of the author's most trusted subjects—gambling, women, writing—but with an additional sense of retrospection. Unafraid of recounting everything from the domestic to pornographic, Bukowski "brought everybody down to earth, even the angels” (Leonard Cohen). A classic Black Sparrow Press publication.
