Locus Solus I-V [Complete Run]

Lans-en-Vercors and Geneva: Locus Solus Press, 1961-1962. First Editions. Paperback. Complete run of this poetry journal called "the overseas wing of the New York School...The magazine was definitely "no nonsense" from the beginning, presenting no manifestoes or editorial statements, just high-quality literature - simply and elegantly presented with care and respect" (Clay & Phillips, p.169). In addition to the editors, contributors included Frank O'Hara, Barbara Guest, André Breton, William S. Burroughs, Joseph Ceravolo, Gregory Corso, Gerard Malanga, Diane Di Prima, LeRoi Jones, and others. A difficult set to complete, since the elusive issue 5 was printed in a small run of 500 copies. KERMANI D3; MAYNARD & MILES C26-27. Five issues bound in four octavo volumes (ca.17.5-18cm); printed wrappers; 167,[1]; 205,[3]; 294,[2]; 184pp. Second (trimmed) state of issue 1, measuring 6 7/8" x 5 1/16" (per Kermani, p.98); issue 1 showing mild toning to extremities, some light external wear, and a short tear to upper front joint; Very Good+. Two faint indentations to edges on issue 2; remaining issues Near Fine.
