Fascinating collection of personal notebooks from several American poets, filled with working drafts of poems, personal notes and writings, drawings, and other miscellaneous ephemera. Included are two journals from Gregory Corso, one signed and dated inside the front cover and the other signed “Corso” on the front endpaper; a journal-scrapbook signed on first page, “Ted Berrigan—Journals, 1981”; three notebooks from Alice Notley (two unsigned, one signed twice); two notebooks and one scrapbook from Gerard Malanga, the scrapbook rife with interesting photos and clippings, including two original candids of Andy Warhol; a notebook from Diane di Prima; and a notebook from artist Robert LaVigne containing several sketches and quotes from literature, inscribed inside, “For Peter Orlovsky on this twenty-second birthday and the occasion of his departure for New York—July 1, 1955, R. LaVigne.” Orlovsky was LaVigne’s lover until he met Allen Ginsberg in 1955, and as such this notebook represents an important moment in Beat history. In overall very good condition, exhibiting significant wear as to be expected of such personal items. A unique and highly personal glimpse into the work and lives of these key figures.
