Horny & Ornery: Poems of Solace in Desolate Times by a Gentleman in the South

Scaly Mountain, North Carolina: The Press of Otis the Lamed-Vovnik (Jonathan Williams), 1994.

First Edition. Staplebound wraps. 11" X 8 1/2". Unpaginated. Flatsigned by Jonathan Williams only to limitation page. Edition limited to 250. A touch of edgewear to pictorial dust jacket and red stapled wraps, else fine. Bookseller notations neatly pencilled to half-title. Binding is tight and sound. Pages are clean, bright, and unmarked. From "Un Petit Prelude" by James Laughlin: "The point is that Williams' epigrams are not just word games. Underneath the gamboling surfaces there is so much crackerbarrel wisdom--the most since Pound: comedy (funny and black), satire, folklore and the praise of ever-quirky nature." Near fine / near fine. Item #1490
