ORIGIN SECOND SERIES: RESPONSE ... FEATURING LOUIS ZUKOFSKY.

[Kyoto]: April 1961. Printed wrappers. Some tanning at edges, but very good. Item #WRCLIT27563

Zukofsky is the featured poet for the issue, and this copy bears his 1975 inscription: "the K's [Kenners] from the Z's Louis May 8/75." Edited and published by Cid Corman. Publication was generally quarterly, and distribution non-commercial. Corman's ORIGIN was among the most vital and interesting of American periodicals devoted to contemporary poetry and translations. The format of featuring a specific author in each issue was persistent. One thousand copies of the first number were printed, but the editions were subsequently much smaller; for the second and third series, 300 copies of each issue were printed (or 200 for the latter according to A&K).
