Pictures of the Gone World : 60th Anniversary Edition, Hardback Book

Pictures of the Gone World : 60th Anniversary Edition Hardback


Lawrence Ferlinghetti has influenced American culture like few other poets.

But in 1955, shortly before he would gain fame as the beloved author of A Coney Island of the Mind, he was an unpublished and mostly unknown poet.

He launched City Lights Publishers that year with a five-hundred-copy letterpress edition of Pictures of the Gone World, Number One in the Pocket Poets Series.

A classic collection of early work, Pictures includes many of Ferlinghetti's most iconic poems.

This limited edition sixtieth anniversary hardcover restores the book to its original selection, and is a must for collectors and fans. Lawrence Ferlinghetti is a poet, painter, and founder of City Lights Booksellers & Publishers.
