Typed letter signed, and colorfully illustrated, from Charles Bukowski to one of his earliest publishers, Jon and Louise Webb. With holograph corrections in green ink by Bukowski throughout. Affixed to the letter are 4 multi-colored abstract drawings in marker and paint, rendered on oddly-cut pieces of paper and applied variously at the margins and within the text. With the original mailing envelope. An early and quite meaty three page letter, dated October 31, 1964, written from the home Bukowski rented on De Longpre Avenue in Los Angeles. The letter contains a wealth of content about the author from those days (and from his perspective), well before he became a celebrity in counterculture or otherwise. He complains about his job at the post office, about a string of whores running him through the wringer, and the race track. Bukowski openly discusses his feelings about his young daughter Marina Louise, and spends two paragraphs complaining about Sheri Martinelli (his first publisher), between which he has drawn a bare-breasted portrait of her. Included also is considerable discussion regarding the apparently endless trouble the Webb's were experiencing, as well as the anticipation of the 3100 copies of Bukowski's second major collection of poems, the soon-to-be-published "Crucifix In A Deathhand." Considerable drunken rambling is present as well, along with a brief poem on the final page. One of the finest Bukowski letters we have seen or handled: early, with historical, literary, and personal content, along with the author's typically dazzling artwork.8.5 x 11 inches, executed on white letter stock, rectos only. Old horizontal folds long smoothed out, with a few faint glue smudges around the affixed artwork, a few tiny stains. Quite bright and supple, Near Fine overall. N° de ref. de la librería
