Willeford on the Roach Clip

The Ubiquitous Roach Clip: Wherein Is Set Down Briefly the Whole Matter of Its History, Utility and Beauty as Art Form and Artifact

Notes: A single sheet folded to make four page.

This is a short essay Charles Willeford wrote in 1973 marveling at the rapid evolution of the roach clip (a device for holding a marijuana cigarette when it becomes too small for one's fingers) from a folded match to an ornate piece of jewelry in less than 10 years. It is not clear to your cataloguer if this piece was previously published and if not, what the origin of the text is.

Published in an edition of 150 copies signed by the publisher, Michael Kellner, with a matching envelope.

Edition + Condition: First separate edition or first edition. A fine copy.
