Wales -- A Visitation July 29, 1967

London: Cape Goliard Press, 1968.

Oblong 16mo (6 5/8 x 4 7/8 inches; 167 x125 mm), [14] pages, in saddle-sewn cream card wrappers covered by a wrapper made from brown rice paper.

SIGNED by Allen Ginsberg on the title page and dated '73. A single poem inspired by a visit to Wales in 1967. The final page states: "An offering for a peaceful summer from Allen Ginsberg & Cape Goliard Press. Not for Sale."

Signed copies of this edition are scarce to the market. This edition should not be confused with a far more expensive hardcover containing a 45rpm record that Cape Goliard Press also issued in 1968.

CONDITION: A tear of about one-half inch (10 mm) in the delicate rice paper where the paper meets the spine on the lower wrapper. Internally, clean, bright, and unmarked. Near Fine. Item #2264

Price: $175.00
