Poèmes Militants

Poèmes Militants

N.p. [Conakry?]: Parti Democratique de Guinee, 1964. An apparently unrecorded early printing, matching the dimensions and pagination of the Lumumba imprint (issued the same year), but entirely without notice of printing on title page. Poèmes Militants, a collection of terse and aggressive lyrics on Guinean Independence, appeared relatively early on in Touré's presidency. It was Touré's only published collection of poems, though it was reissued, in increasingly expanded versions, throughout the Sixties and Seventies. The present edition, issued anonymously and dated "Mars 1964" on the front cover, appears (barring errant WorldCat cataloguing - always a possibility) not to be held by any institution in North America; not found in KVK or COPAC; not at BNF. Octavo (24cm). Staple-bound pamphlet; original buff orange printed wrappers; 34pp. Mild external soil, else Near Fine. Text entirely in French.
