About This Collection

The collection contains the published work of the American poet Louis Zukofsky (1904-1978). The collection includes “every word in every book in every possible variant edition” with the exception of Le Style Appollinaire (a book destroyed by fire in the publisher’s Paris warehouse in 1934). The collection contains a unique manuscript copy of this work, which is written in English, stapled together and marked by Zukofsky as a "First American Edition". Half the books and pamphlets in this collection are signed and/or inscribed by Zukofsky. The collection also includes anthologies and periodical issues containing his work, four translations, four critical works, manuscripts, ephemera, and a photograph.
