About This Item

San Francisco: City Lights Books,, 1961. An inscribed copy First edition, first printing, inscribed by the author on the title page, "Allen Ginsberg, for Vance Morgan, inscribed '81". The recipient was likely the American book collector Vance Morgan. Kaddish is widely considered one of Ginsberg's masterpieces alongside Howl. He wrote the poem after the death of his mother Naomi, during a consequentially dark period of his life. Small octavo. Original black and white wrappers lettered in black and white. Short closed tear at foot of spine, wrappers faintly foxed and toned, extremities a touch rubbed. A very good copy indeed. Morgan A4 a1.1.
