Published in 1972, Vagabond 13 featured three first appearances by Bukowski:

A Man's Woman
Snake In The Watermelon
Work-Fuck Problems

A Man's Woman and Snake In The Watermelon would both appear the same year in Mockingbird Wish Me Luck, while Work-Fuck Problems would not be published again for 30 years until 2002’s Sifting Through the Madness for the Word, the Line, the Way.

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 with some minor shelf wear to the black covers. Overall, an excellent copy of John Bennett’s long running poetry journal which consistently published Bukowski’s work.
