So what's this thing I found on ebay? Am I missled? Is it actually collected somewhere? It's a monthly thing from Black Sparrow featuring one of their writers per issue. This is SPARROW 5 While The Music Played by Charles Bukowski from February 1973. The post says poetry is in it but not what poem(s). Curious. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SPARROW-5-by-CHARLES-BUKOWSKI-1st-Edition-Black-Sparrow-Press-February-1973/142385269636?_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982&_trkparms=aid=888007&algo=DISC.MBE&ao=1&asc=40130&meid=5bd0272bb70048b687a50ec4cad7c322&pid=100009&rk=1&rkt=1&sd=272653278552

Seems a bit pricey for a second printing. Then again, it appears quite clean. What's odd is that the photos clearly show that the covers are slightly textured and darker than the first printings. All four of my first printings are plain, smooth paper like the main pages. Did they use different stock for the second printings?

It appears as tho they did. Martin. Who knows. I love that he published Buk during his lifetime but if I ever wonder, "Well why did Martin...?" I give up. I try to anyway.

Only the firsts are in color. There were third editions sometimes as well.
