A well-meaning list member pointed out to me that it's good form to introduce one's self in any new neighborhood. I knew that!

Anyway, please forgive my oversight.

I'm a 58 year old disabled veteran and rare bookdealer with a long-term interest in Bukowski and a collection that goes back to the beginning. Having had an open store In Monterey while still on active duty, I had the great fortune to become acquainted with folks like Henry Miller and Charles Bukowski, as well as John Martin himself. I will be listing a few items from time to time, and I think you will be surprised at the qualkity and importance of them. A divorce a few years ago totally wiped me out, but I now have access to my books again, and am willing to share. My registration profile is accurate, and I welcome any inquiries or requests.

Sincerely,

Werner Saemmler-Hindrichs [Vladimir/Vova]

Welcome, Werner. What's up with the Boston, MA listing for Black Sparrow? If that had been the case, I might have found some first editions long ago!

Look at the date! Right after John sold the Press, there was an intent to keep it going for a while. I'll check, but I think it was David Godine.

welcome, Werner.

Martin sold BSP many years after Pulp was (unfortunately) published, and the ghost of BSP that made a stab at staying alive after Maritn's sale did not include Bukowski. Bukowski, Fante and someone else went to HarperCollins. The "new" BSP featured only the dregs that were left. It is incorrect to list any Bukowki BSP books with a MA address.

The other author that went to Harper was Paul Bowles. All of the rest went to Godine. I believe that he published a couple Lifshin books, but nothing else under that imprint.

And any first editions of Pulp would be clearly marked "Santa Rosa" on the title page. Despite mjp's notable poor taste on this particular title, he's almost never inaccurate. :p
 
Mea maxima culpa! Here I am, the big shot Bukowski and Black Sparrow Press expert, and I:oops: am guilty of a cardinal sin. I borrowed someone's ISBN listing and did not check the work. Of course mjp is accurate: Santa Rosa is in fact what it says in these books, and of course, Martin sold at the end of 2001, transferring the lists to HarperCollins Ecco for Bukowski, Fante and Bowles; to Mo Cohen for Wyndham Lewis, and to Godine for all other Black Sparrow authors in 2002.

Now, if one of you kind people will show me how to edit the original listing, or tell me if that's even possible to do, I would appreciate it.

Cheers, Vova
