Found Poems

NY: Something Else Press, 1972. First edition. 4to. Full red cloth; red topstain; dust jacket. Unpaginated. Very good, with softening and light sunning at spine ends, slight spine-twist. Unclipped jacket is lightly sun-faded along the spine panel, with short closed tears at the tips and curling and slight wear along the edges. Signed, dated, and inscribed by Porter on the half-title to Gerard [Dombrowski]. Laid in are a cardstock announcement about the book, as well as a business card-sized "compliments of the editors" card, with hand-corrected mailing address for Something Else Press.

Presentation copy of arguably Porter's best known work, Found Poems, which consists of images and text culled from mass-media—recipes, diagrams, advertisements, graphics—and rearranged in a suggestive manner that resists easy interpretation. This copy with nice association, being inscribed by Porter to Gerard Dombrowski, founder of small press Abyss Publications, who issued a number of Porter's (and also Something Else Press founder Dick Higgins') works.
