No-place: No-publisher, (1982). First edition. Twelve SIGNED PHOTOGRAPHS, each one on 11 x 14" paper with all but one image measuring a little over 8.5 x 11.5" (image of Kaufman is 7 x 9"). Each one SIGNED BY FELVER on front at lower right corner just beneath the image and stamped on back with Felver's copyright notice and handwritten date (1982). PORTRAIT OF GINSBERG ADDITIONALLY SIGNED BY HIM opposite Felver's signature on front. TOGETHER WITH packet of ephemera indicating this particular grouping may have been from Felver’s first-ever show, “Beat & Beyond,” at San Francisco’s famed City Lights Bookstore, in October 1983. The extra material, which was housed in a 12 x 10” manila envelope postmarked 4/20/83, includes a photocopy of a review of the show by Gerald Nicosia (Photo Metro, 10/83); photocopies of notes and/or poems in each of the poet’s or writer’s own hand (as appeared in Felver’s eventual 1986 book, POETS EXPOSED), and 2 photocopies on 12 x 9” white cardstock of what seems to have been a mock-up for an ad or perhaps for the opening sequence of Felver's eventual 1984 film, “WEST COAST: ‘BEAT & BEYOND’,” featuring a grainy image of the Golden Gate bridge surrounded by the same or, in the case of Harold Norse, similar photos of each of the poets (in addition to what would appear to be a publicity photo of Jan Kerouac). Mailing envelope folded, soiled and worn, minor scattered stains to contents, otherwise near fine. Flattened crease in portrait of Ginsberg that just barely touches the lower right corner of the image, otherwise the photos are altogether nearly fine.
