UP THRU THE YEARS - INSCRIBED TO LARRY FAGIN & JOAN INGLIS

New York: Angel Hair, 1970. First Edition. A single open form poem, published in a tiny edition by Waldman for distribution among her friends. Waldman and Larry Fagin (1918-2017) were long-time friends, collaborators, and fellow workers at the Poetry Project at St. Marks since 1970-71, who also taught together at the Naropa Institute from the earliest years of its existence. Many of their poems were published side-by-side in Fagin's magazine Adventures in Poetry. An elusive, privately-distributed volume, connecting two prominent New York School poets and publishers.
