Contributors include James Welch, Felix Pollak, Robert Peters, Stephen Sandy, Philip Levine, George Scarbrough, John Gill, Harley Elliott, Stuart Friebert, William Childress, John Judson, Douglas Flaherty, Dennis Trudell, Larry Eigner, Harold Witt, Besmilr Brigham, Raymond DiPalma, Douglas Eichhorn, Peter Schjeldahl, Phillip Hey, Nancy Willard, Charles Bukowski, Marge Piercy, James Tate, Emmett Jarrett, Carolyn Stoloff, James Bertolino, Carroll Arnett, James Tipton, Marvin Bell, Greg Kuzma, Terry Stokes, Eric Torgersen, Adrien Stoutenburg, Duane Ackerson, and Peter Wild.

E.V. Griffith published Bukowski’s first book (Flower, Fist and Bestial Wail) in 1960 and his first stand-alone poem/broadside, His Wife, The Painter.

Bukowski also appeared in several early issues of Hears, beginning in 1958. The magazine went on hiatus for a few years until Griffith came across a Bukowski poem submitted years before, which inspired him to start publishing Hearse again. That poem was the legendary The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over The Hills.

A Very Good ++ copy with some light sunning to the covers and oxidized staples. Binding is solid and interior pages are white and clean.

Overall, a nice copy by an important early supporter of Bukowski’s work.
