Book is new and unread. Jacket is new. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 94 pages; Whne I was in high school in the early 1960's, a friend and I read several poems from Lawrence Ferlinghetti's A Coney Island of the Mind at our Methodist Youth fellowship gathering one Sunday evening. We were greeted with a kind of embarrassed silence from everyone. I say this only because Ferlinghetti is over 90 and still going. This is his collection from the turn of the century.

My Landlord Must be Really Upset, Wagner, D. R. (ed.)
9 Wagner, D. R. (ed.) My Landlord Must be Really Upset
Sacremento Open Skull Press 1970 First Edition; First Printing Softcover Good+ Illustrated by T. L. Kryss 
Side-stapled, mimeographed wraps with light general wear and aging. Some toning on some edges. I have an extra page with mainly advertising for other publications. I think it is the back wrap for this issue, so it gets included. These hand-made magazines were often a bit to large for the staples and a back page might work free. This issue is still square and, except for that page, secure. A careful person could reattach the page. ; Cover art plus other B&W Illustrations; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; Writing by Blazek, Nichol, Finch, Kryss, Spicer, and others. 
Price: 40.00 USD
