New York: Telegraph Books, 1972. First printing. Paperback. Near Fine. Bockris, Victor. In America. New York: Telegraph Books, 1972, first printing. Wraps, card covers with a photograph of Bockris by Aram Saroyan, 4 3/4 by 7 1/4-inches, 26 pp. plus page listing Telegraphs publications. Only faint signs of shelf wear to what appears to be an unread copy. Pages 9/10 and 19/20 are duplicated, but no leaves are missing. One of the ten publication from telegraph, the press of Saroyan, Bockris, and Andrew Wylie. Their compact look and consistent cover design was reminiscent of City Light’s Pocket Poet series—and this wasn’t by chance. “We wanted to do something specifically for our generation,” said Saroyan about Telegraph, “along the lines of what Ferlinghetti had done for the Beat Generation with his City Lights Books.” (Clay & Phillips, pp. 212 – 213). (eph) First Edition.
