Item #6745 THE EARTH ROSE 1. Charles Bukowski, Steve Richmond, contributor.


Santa Monica: Privately Printed by Steve Richmond, [1966]. First Edition. Attractive copy of this tabloid-style broadside, reprinting Bukowski's poems "Freedom" and "True Story," which first appeared in the pages of Olé, together with contributions by Richmond and John Buckner. The front wrapper's message proved to be somewhat inflammatory, resulting in police raiding Richmond's Santa Monica store shortly after publication, arresting him on obscenity charges, and seizing his stock, which included a number of Bukowski's books. Dorbin E32. Item #6745
