Bast Collectible Books

Bast Collectible Books offers a short but growing list of signed first editions and other collectible books on Amazon.com.

The Beat poetry books are from the private collection of a well-known artist who was attending the San Francisco Art Institute in the late Seventies when the most famous Beat poets lived in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood or made the pilgrimage there often. The poets gave their books to the artist and signed them for him. Coming soon! First City Lights editions of poetry by Bob Kaufman and Philip Lamantia.

Other selections are from private book collectors with extensive collections who are willing to part with a few books.

We’ll be offering more selected titles as we scout them out and acquire them.

Coming soon! A rare, first 1967 edition of the late, great Lenore Kandel's Love Book, the slim Beat poetry volume that shut down City Lights Bookstore for purveying pornography, and a mint-condition signed first edition hardcover of Earth by the acclaimed science fiction author, David Brin
