San Francisco: X-Ray Books, 1999. First printing. Broadside. As New. Silverman, Herschel. Pearl for Flo. San Francisco: Pneumatic Press/X-Ray Book Co., 1999, presumed limited edition of 226 (see below). Small, letterpress-printed broadside (single, one-sided sheet), 4 1/8 by 4 7/8-inches. Fine, as new condition. SIGNED by Silverman along left edge. This poem was originally issued in X-Ray Magazine number eight, 1999. It was a laid-in piece and has since lost its original home. X-Ray Magazine, edited by Johnny Brewton, was a yearly bound and laid-in collection of poetry, art, and found objects that were created in various ways, including letterpress, Xerox, and by hand. It was known for having several pieces signed by the poets/artists in each issue. The publication lasted for ten issues, from 1993 to 2004, and is quite scarce and often quite expensive. Each issue was published in a limited edition of 226 copies; 200 numbered and 26 lettered. The lettered copies were signed by the cover artist. Silverman has described himself as a “post beat avant garde experimental free jazz poet” and is a New York literary fixture. We ship our books in boxes or cardboard wraps, never in bags.
