TARANTULA, BY BOB DYLAN:

Tarantula is an experimental prose poetry collection by Bob Dylan, written in 1965 and 1966 and published in 1971. It employs stream of consciousness writing, somewhat in the style of Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, and Allen Ginsberg. One section of the book parodies the Lead Belly song "Black Betty". Reviews of the book liken it to his self-penned liner notes to two of his albums recorded around the same time, Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited.

Dylan would later cite Tarantula as a book he had never fully signed up to write: "Things were running wild at that point. It never was my intention to write a book." He went on to equate the book to John Lennon's nonsensical work In His Own Write, and implied that his former manager Albert Grossman signed up Dylan to write the novel without the singer's full consent... Although it was to be edited by Dylan and published in 1966, his motorcycle accident in July '66 prevented this.

The first 50 copies were printed on A4 paper by the Albion underground press of San Francisco in mid-1965. The type-written pages were bound in yellow paper with a large red tick-like arachnid pictured on the front. Numerous bootleg versions of the book were available on the black market through 1971, when it was officially published to critical scorn. (Wikipedia)

   TARANTULA, by Bob Dylan, Macmillan original galley or printing proof . The text is the same, but there is more text on each page than released. It is said that the first bootleg editions were made after galley xeroxes like this one; 78 pages, probably with plastic ringbound. (info Magne Karlstad) [0310]

 TARANTULA, by Bob Dylan, Macmillan, 1966 uncorrected proof, 68 pages. These proofs - of which only "a few copies" were produced, according to publisher Macmillan's press release - are dated 3 July, 1966 ("376"). A copy, offered for sale ($10,000) in Nov 2013 wears "pub. date: Aug 1966 Price: $3.95 (tent.)" in holograph ink at the top of the front cover. The proofs were printed five years before the book was actually published. Read more about it: www.booktryst.com [1113]

  TARANTULA, by Bob Dylan, bootleg edition, 76 pages. Early bootleg of the advance copy of Tarantula by Bob Dylan, printed and distributed in the East Village in NY sometime between 1967-1970  by A.J. Weberman. This edition was not stapled: the pages are loose, 38 sheets enclosed in a file folder which is rubber stamped in ink, 'Bob Dylan Tarantula'.

It includes two items that do not exist in any other bootlegs:

1) 'D.L.F. Buffalo Position Paper -This two sided essay (yellow page) written by Mike Drobenaire,self proclaimed 'D.L.F. Yippie', outlinesthe beliefs and goals of the D.L.F. (the Dylan Liberation Front). The end of the position paper contains contact information for the D.L.F. at the State University of Buffalo.

2) 'A Dylanological Introduction to Tarantula' -This essay, written and signed by Weberman in facsimile (with a hand correction in pen), offers an introduction to Tarantula from Weberman's unique perspective. He discusses 'Dylanological' symbolism in the book, and even gets into his 'garbology' analysis. Weberman is out to lunch in this introduction, touching on topics ranging from Dylan's "late-night suicidal motorcycle accident" to the prescription bottle Weberman found in Dylan's garbage, to a request to contact him "if anyone knows how I can get a sample of Dylan's urine".
