 City Lights - San Francisco Bookstore
This landmark book was the first of the Pocket Poets book series.
City Lights was founded in 1953, by then unknown poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Peter Martin, as the nation's first all-paperback bookstore.
City Lights Publishers was inaugurated with the release of Pictures of the Gone World, a collection of Ferlinghetti's poetry.

 Amazon.com: Books: City Lights Pocket Poets Anthology
Celebrating 40 years of publishing, this anthology contains selections from all 52 volumes of the "Pocket Poets" series.
Opening with Ferlinghetti's self-published "Pictures of the Gone World," the book moves on to familiar names (Denise Levertov, Kenneth Patchen, Robert Duncan) as well as lesser-known poets (La Loca, Charles Upton, Adam Cornford).
This book is incredible for both the aesthetic pleasure it offeres to its reader, and the inspirational possibilities it holds.

The fourth book in City Lights' Pocket Poets Series, it featured an introduction by William Carlos Williams, who had been a mentor to the younger Ginsberg in his home state of New Jersey.
"What nurtured 'Howl' into being was the community of painters, musicians and poets who were very active before it was written."

 Amazon.com: Books: City Lights Pocket Poets Anthology
Second, Ferlinghetti seems undecided on the nature of the volume--is it supposed to represent the best poems in the series, or is it a nostalgic history trip?
Opening with Ferlinghetti's self-published "Pictures of the Gone World," the book moves on to familiar names (Denise Levertov, Kenneth Patchen, Robert Duncan) as well as lesser-known poets (La Loca, Charles Upton, Adam Cornford).
As Ferlinghetti admits, his aim was "to discover," and this retrospective proves "how right or how important (or how trivial) the editor's choices were." The publisher also welcomed artists established in other disciplines, printing works that other publishers shied away from: William Carlos Williams's hard-to-categorize meditations, poems by Malcolm Lowry and Pier Paolo Pasolini.

City Lights published Howlin 1956 (Ferlinghetti asked Ginsberg for the manuscript the same night it was read at the Six Gallery) as Number Four in the Pocket Poets Series.
And a recalcitrant model it was, since Spicer was not a fan of the Beats and carried on a running war against Ferlinghetti in particular.
He imagined Ferlinghetti had become commercial and financially successful, thereby, in Spicer's mind, "selling out" to the establishment.
