King Lord / Queen Freak

Cleveland: Renegade Press, 1964. Saddle-stapled in wraps. First edition. Edition of 105 copies. 16mo. Very good. Covers are rubbed and stained, edges bumped; however, a largely clean copy of an exceedingly scarce publication. Item #4859

Poetry by Ed Sanders printed on white thick paper with illustrations by d.a. levy printed on irregularly sized yellow paper, alternating. Published by levy at Renegade Press, this volume was one of the seven titles confiscated and destroyed by the Cleveland Police Department when they raided Jim Lowell’s Asphodel Book Shop. Already produced in an exceptionally small run, its seizure and destruction by the state has left only a few copies extant.
