First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed on the front free endpaper to fellow Beat Generation poet Gerard Malanga "For Gerard, Language & Light keep us going. Love, Harold Norse. San Francisco 19/XI/72".

The inscription was penned a few months after the publication of the first issue of Norse's Bastard Angel Magazine, for which he was able to draw from his associations with writers such as William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Charles Bukowski, Gerard Malanga, and others.

Norse (1916-2009) was one of 20th century America's important poets who was a pioneer in the use of common American speech and an early advocate for Gay Liberation.
