IN MEDIAS RES: Canto One of DUST SHALL BE THE SERPENT'S FOOD; Together with THE ENGENDERING FLOOD (Cantos I-IV).

San Francisco / Santa Rosa: Adrian Wilson / Black Sparrow Press, (1984) / 1990. First edition. Two volumes. Everson's unfinished autobiographical verse epic. Includes IN MEDIAS RES, which is a work of art, designed, printed and published by Adrian Wilson (1923 - 1988). Number 126 of 226 copies SIGNED by the author, artist, and publisher. ENGENDERING FLOOD restarts the planned "Dust Shall Be the Serpent's Food" series, perhaps due to Wilson's death. It's been designated "Book One," includes "In Medias Res," and adds 3 more Cantos to what Everson surely planned to be a much longer narrative. Number 26 of 50 specially bound copies SIGNED by Everson and with SIGNED BROADSIDE laid in. Both books are fine with only minor wear. Original prospectus laid in first volume. Second volume includes the original acetate.
