A PULP MAGAZINE FOR THE DEAD GENERATION.

Paris: The Dead Language, 1959. First edition. Three long leaves of Ingres Ecoles paper, printed letterpress, each folded three times (16x63cm. unfolded), unbound in textured blue paper folder with lettering and motif in black. Photograph of Om (Olivia de Haulleville) missing from final panel (a leaf from an incomplete copy is supplied which includes the photograph).

This copy has been inscribed by Olivia de Haulleville at her short introductory text, "I Love Moons I Fear Cats" (SIGNED by her with her forenames "Olivia Melusine"), and by Piero Heliczer, who has added two notes in the margins accompanying Henk Marsman's contribution, the second of which reads: "2. Must try the difficult yet so easy discipline of being a vegetarian and a cannibal".

The book prints "Lemurs" by Om; five poems by Henk Marsman (the Dutch poet, Hendrik Jan Marsman, aka J. Bernlef); and four poems from 'The Vestal Lady on Brattle and Other Poems' by Gregory Corso. Each contribution is preceded by a brief text, Corso's probably written by Piero Heliczer, the others by the poets themselves.

Diagonal corner crease to upper panel of extra leaf; slight offsetting to first panel; minor creasing internally; small lower edge nick to one leaf; o/w Near Fine.

Provenance: Hendrik Marsman.
