There are later printings of this publication, but this is the first edition/first printing from 1973 and it’s getting very hard to find in this condition.

While there are no Charles Bukowski poems, he contributes an original full-page portrait of each of the poets included in this anthology:

John Thomas,
Ann Menebroker,
Ronald Koertge
Lyn Lifshin
Al Masarik
Joel Deutsch

The drawings convey Bukowski’s unmistakable style and make a nice addition to a Bukowski collection.

This copy is in excellent near fine condition. The "Poets" font inside the #6 on the cover usually fades dramatically with time, but the neon orange color is intact with this copy, as is the $1 price. There are some visible small scratches and scuffs in the black 6 of the design, but the covers are very clean for the white background. Interior pages have the normal toning from age. There is also a small bump and crease to the bottom right of the front cover and the corresponding spot on the rear cover.

Another great publication by John Bennette and his legendary Vagabond Press, this time out of Ellensburg, Washington.
