HOT WATER MUSIC. Stories. 1/100 With An Original Painting

Santa Barbara: Black Sparrow Press, 1983. Charles Bukowski. First edition, signed deluxe edition. Hardcover. One of 100 numbered copies, #36, with an original painting by Charles Bukowski (with tissue guard). A very elegant forest like scene, abstract, with lace-like images, signed in ink by Bukowski in the bottom right corner, "Buk". Also signed in full on the colophon page, where Bukowski has added his trademark drawing of "little man with bottle". 36 stories. The collection deals largely with drinking, women, gambling, and writing. It is an important collection that establishes Bukowski's minimalist style and his thematic oeuvre (however, if Buk was editing my description he would insist I delete the word "oeuvre!). In the deluxe binding of patterned cloth and decorated boards. A near fine copy with acetate dust wrapper. Item #13533
