Item #SKB-17341

Single quarto sheet folded to make a 4-page leaflet. First edition. Prints a 2-page, rather humorous, prose piece by Dylan that includes much of the fabricated myth-making that he was prone to at this early stage of his career: "I danced my way from the Indian festivals in Gallop, New Mexico / To the Marti [sic] Gras in New Orleans, Louisiana / With my thumb out, my eyes asleep, my hat turned up an' my head turned on / I's driftin' an' learnin' new lessons / I was making my own depression / I rode freight trains for kicks / An' got beat up for laughs / Cut grass for quarters / An' sang for dimes..." This item was a hand-out for attendees of Dylan's famous Town Hall concert in NYC on April 12, 1963, his first major concert. This text was reprinted in various concert programs over the next several years. Slight uniform toning, a bit darker at the top and right edges, else fine. A rare item from the early phase of Dylan's career---we have never seen this before. No copies on OCLC.

Price: $1,750.00
