Published in 1971, Vagabond 12 featured one Charles Bukowski poem:


The poem has yet to be published again.

There is also a great plug for Bukowski books on the inside front cover that starts with,

“THE BEST POET in the entire fucking country, surprisingly unheard of in the Bay Area, is Charles Bukowski…”

Conceived in the fall of 1964 over a pitcher of beer in Washington D.C., Vagabond was an early proponent of Bukowski and published him regularly between 1966-1978. The publisher was John Bennett. A vagabond himself, Bennett published the first few issues in Munich, Germany, and then from locations all over the United States. He also published many other chapbooks for other poets. Bukowski would appear in 12 issues of Vagabond as well as its anthology.

This copy is in Near Fine condition with some very light browning to the covers.

Overall, a very nice copy of John Bennett’s long running poetry journal which consistently published Bukowski’s work.
