Book Description Spectacular Diseases, Peterborough, 1986. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. 4to. Stab-stitched. 46pp. Stencils typed by Paul Buck. Published as 'serie d'ecriture' 1, a journal translating current French writing. The translators here are Rosmarie Waldrop, who edited the journal, and Tod Kabza; the Waldrops' Burning Deck later took on the series. Veinstein is described as 'one of the poets who are reacting strongly against the Surrealist image which has dominated French poetry as much as Pound's and W. C. Williams' "Imagism" has American poetry. "Shall we escape analogy?" he asks with [Claude] Royet-Journoud, a battle cry which, with characteristic sophistication, immediately calls itself into question.' Near Fine overall, with light wear to the blank back cover. Bookseller Inventory # 002389
