San Francisco: Printed by Lawton Kennedy, 1980. No binding. Quarto size,  pp., inscribed by Marlan Beilke. Fine. Item #200315001
A program for the autumn meeting of the Gleeson Library Associates in November, 1980; the cover features a reproduction of a "relatively unknow[n]" photograph of the poet Robinson Jeffers (ostensibly taken in 1941), and inside is a sweet anecdote about Jeffers and his friend Phoebe Barkan titled "In the Absence of Words". The program is inscribed by Marlan Beilke, the featured speaker, with the lecture titled "Conversations With the Future".
Per a prior owner, this is the last Lawton Kennedy printing; Kennedy (1900-1980) was a noted California printer whose career spanned 67 years; this program was indeed printed the year he died.
___DESCRIPTION: One sheet folded twice to make four pages, black-and-white photograph of Robinson Jeffers on the front, text printed in red and black; quarto size (10.5" by 7.5"), inscribed by the lecturer Marlan Beilke on the interior recto page.
___CONDITION: Fine, clean, without wear, and entirely without prior owner markings; a few shallow creases to the covers, else fine.
___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details.
