Iroquois Falls, Ontario: Privately Printed [Contact Press], 1955.
1st Edition. Soft cover. Turnbull (Gael) & Jean Beaupre. Translators. A complete set of the four mimeographed publications translated by Turnbull & Jean Beaupre in the summer of 1955, at Iroquois Falls, Ontario, Summer 1955, for private distribution [Contact Press]. These four titles were reportedly limited to only 25 copies each stapled into silk screened various coloured wrappers. Once in awhile a title appears for sale usually showing considerable wear as these were fragile things. The set offered here is essentially in fine condition showing minimal use. An interesting project - the whole idea of translating 4 Quebec poets in the '50's was of immense importance. Included are: SIX POEMS BY PAUL-MARIE LAPOINTE, SEVEN POEMS BY GILLES HENAULT, NINE POEMS BY SAINT-DENYS-GARNEAU & EIGHT POEMS BY ROLAND GIGUERE. Very nice indeed. $2950.00.
