Bixby Canyon ocean path word breeze

New York: Gotham Book Mart, 1972. Copy number 9 of 100 copies signed and numbered by the poet and bound in cloth. [Also 26 cloth copies lettered A-Z and a trade edition.] 7 photographs. [21] pp. Brick-colored cloth titled in gilt with a color plate by Emil White mounted on the front. Lawrence Ferlinghetti's cabin in Bixby Canyon, Big Sur was a temporary home over many years to Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and many other Beat Generation writers. The cabin sits in the woods a few hundred yards up the creek from the beach and the high, iconic arched bridge that carries California Highway 1 over the beach. Bill Webb was a fine photographer who made his living as an independent sales rep for some of the better small and mid-sized publishers in the country. Emil White was a pal of Henry Miller's who lived in one of several cabins on the cliffs near the hot springs in Big Sur. A very fine copy. A scan of the well-signed colophon page would require breaking open the back cover, so the reader will have to accept my word that it exists. **Free domestic shipping with direct order. Item #88406
