The Insect Trust Gazette Summer 1968
Berkeley, CA: Robert Bassara, 1968. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Spiral bound. B&W Illustrations; The Insect Trust Gazette was a poetry journal edited by Leonard Belasco and William Levy (Philadelphia, 1964-1968) who published such notable writers as William S. Burroughs. A rock group in the late 1960s, The Insect Trust, was named after this journal. This edition is spiral bound, with heavy cardstock covers. The text pages are clean and bright. Included are works by: N. B. Shein, Jennifer Stevens, Friedrich Schroder-Sonnenstern, Sinclair Beiles, William Levy, Wolfgang Hallman, Jan Fort, Leonard Belasco, S. J. Leon, Charles MacDermed, Stewart Paley, William Wroth, The Heap, Jed Irwin, Stuart Gordon, Les Fram, Claude Levi-Strauss, Max Ernst, Roger Hillyard, and, Stephanie Bjorndahl. "The Gazette ran for only three issues from 1964 to 1968. Leonard Belasco, Jed Irwin, Robert Basara, and Bill Levy edited the magazine in Philadelphia and later California. The magazine got its name from a line in a Burroughs novel. Not surprisingly, Burroughs appeared in the first two issues. The magazine grew out of a literary scene surrounding Temple University. This fits a pattern shared by several of the magazines of the literary underground. A young student or students read deeply in alternative literature in many cases the work of the Beats. These students correspond with their writer heroes hoping to publish them in University sponsored channels. The powers that be at the University object to the material forcing the students to start their own literary magazine.". Very Good .

0884960501 MILLER, HENRY, Henry Miller's Book of Friends a Tribute to Friends of Long Ago
MILLER, HENRY
Henry Miller's Book of Friends a Tribute to Friends of Long Ago
Santa Barbara, CA: Capra Press, 1976. 1st Trade Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. ISBN: 0884960501. B&W Illustrations; First Trade Edition. This book is in Fine condition and has a Very Good+ dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket has some rubbing and edge wear along with some light, but noticeable foxing to the top front panel. "Henry Miller began Book of Friends in 1973 with the idea of redering homage to the friends in his life, most were unknown to the public." "In 1940, Miller returned to New York; after a year-long trip around the United States, a journey that would become material for The Air-Conditioned Nightmare, he moved to California in June 1942, initially residing just outside Hollywood in Beverly Glen, before settling in Big Sur in 1944. While Miller was establishing his base in Big Sur, the Tropic books, then still banned in the USA, were being published in France by the Obelisk Press and later the Olympia Press. There they were acquiring a slow and steady notoriety among both Europeans and the various enclaves of American cultural exiles. As a result, the books were frequently smuggled into the States, where they proved to be a major influence on the new Beat Generation of American writers, most notably Jack Kerouac, the only Beat writer Miller truly cared for. By the time his banned books were published in the 1960s and he was becoming increasingly well-known, Miller was no longer interested in his image as an outlaw writer of smut-filled books; however, he eventually gave up fighting the image.".
