Ephemera from the California Book Auction, 1976 laid in loosely. 59 pp. Madeline Gleason (1903 – 1979) was a poet, dramatist, and the founder of the San Francisco Poetry Guild. In 1947, she directed the first poetry festival in the United States, laying the groundwork (along with other figures such as Kenneth Rexroth, Robert Duncan, William Everson, Jack Spicer, James Broughton, et al.) for what became known as the San Francisco Renaissance. This is her first book. Grabhorn Press is a luminary figure in the history of the California small press.
