Perfect-bound in printed and illustrated wrappers, 5″ x 8″, 103 pages. Illustrated by Rosalind (Schwartz) [aka Panama Rose]. Contributors include: William S. Burroughs, Ian Sommerville, Brion Gysin, Harold Norse, Allen Ginsberg, Michael McClure, J. Sheeper, Jack Smith, Marc Shleifer, Mohammed Ben Abdullah Yussufi (translated by Irving Rosenthal), J.

First edition:
(New York), Gnaoua Press, 1966

According to the Eddie Woods website , the Panama Rose pseudonym belongs to Ira Cohen’s then-girlfriend, Panama-born, Rosalind Schwartz. She and Ira were together from 1963, when they met in Tangier, until June 1968 in New York City. Rosalind did all the drawings for the cookbook, and then designed it. Just as she’d designed Ira’s seminal literary magazine Gnaoua, though all she was credited for in that regard were the cantharides beetles on the cover and copyright page.

According to BeatBooks:  Written six days after MacLise’s death in Kathmandu in June 1979.

According to Ira Cohen in his essay “The Great Rice Paper Adventure”: In 1979 Angus MacLise died on the Summer Solstice and the cycle seemed to be over. The great rice paper adventure drew to a close as most of us left Nepal and moved on. It became more difficult to continue on limited funds, the emphasis on “bona fide” tourists increased, and the valley was filled with all the worst signs of twentieth century commodification. For a few years we were privileged to help turn the prayer wheels of this Himalayan kingdom which gave us a sense of being Akashic Agents, dedicated to preserving the records of our time, there in Shangri-La.
