The Edna Webster Collection of Undiscovered Writings.
A Fine, unread copy. This copy is number 31 of only 65 copies quarter-bound by John DeMerritt in cloth and marbled paper boards. In 1955 at the age of 21, the unknown writer Richard Brautigan had been living in Eugene, Oregon with the family of Edna Webster that was not his own; He was also preparing to leave Oregon for San Francisco to make his mark as a writer. In gratitude for Edna's generosity, he signed over to her the ownership rights to all of his heretofore unpublished fiction and poetry manuscripts. From 1955 until 1992, Edna Webster retained all of the Brautigan material that he gave her in a safe deposit box until she sold the archive to a rare bookseller in the Bay area. After placing the collection in the Bancroft Library, the bookseller arranged for the publication of the prose and poems that appears in this volume. The material is classic Brautigan and considered some of his best . Catalog Elm. Bookseller Inventory # 23822
