Six Sections from Mountains and Rivers Without End, 1967

Published: Fulcrum Press, London

Date: 1967

Green cloth covers with gilt lettering to the spine, all clean and sharp with a few light scratches to the boards as seen in photos. Green endpapers and clean and bright pages with a touch of age toning to the outer edges. Unclipped dust jacket, clean and bright, with light crease to the top of the spine and light brown marks to the verso but overall in very good condition. 47pp. Fulcrum Press was a major avant garde poetry press started in 1965 by Stuart Montgomery, a Rhodesian-born doctor and poet. During its time, Fulcrum Press published about 40 books by more than 20 writers. It made a significant contribution to the British Poetry Revival and was one of the best-known little presses of the period recognized for publishing the works of Modernist poets including Ezra Pound, Basil Bunting, Tom Pickard and Gary Snyder. We have recently acquired a small selection of titles from the Fulcrum Press, including Tom Pickard‘s High On The Walls (with jacket artwork by the singer Ian Dury) and two First Editions by Gary Snyder, that from his work as an environmental activist has been described as the "poet laureate of Deep Ecology". Snyder is the winner of a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and the American Book Award.
