All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace, Richard Brautigan
Scarce first edition of Brautigan's fifth poetry collection, published in an edition of 1,500 copies and distributed for free. Laid-in is a signed check from Brautigan to Vesuvio, the historic saloon across an alley from City Lights Bookstore and a frequent haunt of Beat Generation writers.
San Francisco: The Communication Company, 1967. Mimeo sheets bound in publisher's original wraps. A very good or better copy. Light shelfwear and rubbing to wraps with a few small instances of foxing and toning, faint semi-circular stain to top of rear wrap and the last few pages, else clean.
