Swinging Syllables.

Memphis: Kimbrough Publishing, n.d. [ca 1959].

Item #SKB-17027

Small pamphlet. First edition under this title. A glossary of beatnik lingo illustrated with drawings. Interestingly, and inexplicably, the entire contents of this book (save for the title page) are exactly the same as "Beatnik Dictionay" published around the same time by Publishers Moderna in Peoria. Judging from a contemporary magazine ad both books were available simultaneously, though we don't know if one preceded. Back cover toned, else near fine. Scarce.

Price: $300.00
