Tangier, Morocco: Gnaoua, 1964. First edition. 103 pp. Illustrated magenta wraps. Number One, Spring 1964. Very Good with sunned spine, corner crease to front cover, light soiling, and contents toned with age. The first and only issue of a mostly expatriate literary journal compiled in Tangier, Morocco. It features the photos of Jack Smith (stills from his film Flaming Creatures), as well as work from famous Beats Allen Ginsberg, Michael McClure, and William S. Burroughs. The latter's influence on Bob Dylan was profound. This literary magazine was featured on Dylan's mantelpiece on the front cover of the album Bringing It All Back Home as per Dylan's request, which is a testament to that influence that also made this one-off production an instant cult favorite. First Edition. Very Good.
