Olson, Toby.  Three & one. Mt. Horeb, WI: Perishable Press, 1976. 16mo (13.3 cm, 5.25"). [16] pp.; illus.
$125.00

First edition of this collaboration between Olson and Walter Hamady of the Perishable Press, with a title variance commented upon in the postface; while the half-title calls this Three & One, the title-page gives Four Poems, with the Perishable Press bibliography using the former. The typeface was Sabon-Antiqua printed in blue, maroon, black, and grey on Frankfurt and Frankfurt Cream papers, sewn into blue marbled paper wrappers, and the poems are => illustrated with two intricate drawings by Mary Laird, hand-tinted with colored pencils by the printer. 145 copies were printed.
        Provenance: This copy inscribed, in an angular, decorative hand (presumably Hamady's), to a contemporary bookseller and archivist, with the inscription dated 1976.

Two Decades of Hamady & the Perishable Press, 76. Wrappers as above, with very faint traces of wear to extremities, otherwise clean and fresh. It should be noted that the hand-tinting is to small portions of the illustrations only, and very subtle in tone; inscription, as above, large and bold. => A nice copy of this "first," with an interesting inscription.  (37227)   Please RESHELVE This.
