"[This publication] covers some ninety-four broadsides, pamphlets, and books published between 1966 (a broadside by Bukowski) and 1970 (10 Poems for 10 Poets by Gerald Malanga, one of Andy Warhol's Factory crew). The material is meticulously described, file by file, and typically the files contain much the same material for each book: manuscripts, proofs, drawings, file copies of the book, and letters from the writers.... [The project] will be of great use to everyone who studies postmodern American poetry."
