Giant Night. Anne Waldman.

Giant Night

[New York]: Angel Hair, 1968. First Edition, First Printing. SIGNED by Anne Waldman on the final page, her first book and one of only 100 mimeographed copies. A meditation on "my little world," written when she and fellow poet Lewis Warsh were living on St. Mark's Place in the East Village. The poem is dated December 3, 1967, but was published by their Angel Hair imprint in 1968. Folio (14 inches / 35.7 cm), 4 unnumbered leaves, in stapled printed wrappers, featuring a beautiful cover illustration by George Schneeman, who often collaborated with New York School poets. Pages lightly toned, some soiling to the covers, half-inch tear and some rippling to the rear cover page. A Very Good copy. OCLC WorldCat lists 21 institutional holdings of this edition. Corinth reprinted Giant Night in 1970; that edition is readily obtainable. This true first edition, though, is very scarce to the market, especially in acceptable, collectible condition. SCARCE.
