Transit Glory. Edward Marshall, Ill William Heine.

Transit Glory

New York: Carp & Whitefish, 1967. First edition. Loose Sheets. Loose cards in envelope. The scarce second "book" by Marshall. Published by Irving Rosenthal at his Carp & Whitefish press. Each card (14) has illustrations by William Heine on one side and text by Marshall on the verso. One of the cards is folded to form a small booklet. The cards reside in a decorated envelope with a cloth string hanging from it. The cards measure 3 3/8" wide x 6 1/4" tall. Cards are in near fine condition. The envelope is a bit soiled and worn. PLEASE NOTE: This copy contains two copies of "A Snort, (or, Rain Broom) and lacks the card entitled "The Fool". Sold in as -in condition. Marshall circulated among many different poet groups of the 60's from the Beats to the Black Mountain crew and beyond and never quite settled in any one group. He was anthologized in Don Allen's New American Poetry and later appeared in many small press journals such as Measure, Yugen and the Black Mountain Review. No indication of a print run, but it is safe to say that not many saw the light of day. Eleven copies held in institutional hands, but the book seldom comes to light in the secondary market. Very Good. Item #24015
