Mimeo handbill announcing a reading by Herbert Huncke at Le Metro Cafe.

[NY: Fuck You Press,1964].

Item #SKB-16771

4to. "Attention poets, historians, flame brains, spaceouts, & madmen Herbert Huncke Reads! from his absolute work." This was a very early reading for Huncke preceding publication of his first book. Le Metro was an important, though short-lived, mid-sixties showcase for the N.Y.C. avant-garde. A 1964 reading there by Jackson Mac Low sparked a landmark censorship battle that amended the New York Coffee House Law of 1962. One of the scarcest handbills from the Fuck You Press. Old horizontal center crease, else fine.

Price: $450.00
