Wales: A Visitation July 29th 1967 (Signed with Vinyl Record).

London: Cape Goliard Press, 1968. Limited Edition. Hand-numbered as 59 of 100 copies, SIGNED by Ginsberg to half-title page. Poem written by Ginsberg whilst on LSD, during his visit to the cottage of publisher Tom Maschler in the Black Mountains of Wales. As he later recounted, "my approach to [the poem], originally, was self-contradictory because—taking an acid trip, and then wanting to gain something, bring back a poem, maybe a poem about God or something—see God and bring back a poem!—pay your mind, see God, bring back a poem, cash it in to The New Yorker, get a hundred dollars, take the money and run back to the next universe." The long poem printed here alongside a facsimile of the original manuscript, and illustrated after 4 full-bleed black-and-white photos of Ginsberg by Maschler. Complete with 45 RPM record of a Ginsberg recital, housed in enclosure to rear pastedown. A fine copy in olive papered boards. With photo-illustrated jacket, in original glassine; also fine, save for very minor chip to glassine at lower front corner.
