UNTO CAESAR. Michael McClure.

UNTO CAESAR

[San Francisco: David Haselwood Books, 1965]. First Edition. After the dissolution of the Auerhahn Press, "Haselwood returned to hand-made books, producing a series of exquisite booklets by the authors closest to him. Printed on dampened hand-made papers and exotically bound, they are his finest work. They were a non-commercial venture and evoked criticism for being deliberate rarities. Most copies were given away by poet and printer..." (Bibliography of the Auerhahn Press, pp.56-57). A delightful fusion of poet and typographer, legendarily uncommon, even at the time of production. No copies for sale in the trade; OCLC shows roughly a third of the print run held in institutional hands. Haselwood 1. Item #3914
