Scarce title from poet, photographer, filmmaker, publisher, and Beat figure Ira Cohen's Gnaoua Press. THE HASHISH COOKBOOK, a collection of recipes concocted in Tangier by Rosalind Schwartz (Cohen's girlfriend ó who also illustrated and designed the book, among other Gnaoua publications), was published under the pseudonym Panama Rose, and sold through its 10,000 copy print-run in just six weeks. Inspired by a suggestion from Brion Gysin (who previously supplied an edibles recipe for Alice B. Toklas's cookbook), the recipes combine traditional Moroccan and Indian cooking with practical directions for rendering hashish and cannabis: "Nebuchadnezzar's Dream: Toast whole stalks of grass over an open fire in the country. Salt, dip in honey, and eat it off the stalk. This is the way they do it in the Rif mountains." Cohen later infamously took sole credit for the book, and it went through several other editions and piracies ó all of which are uncommon. And despite a large print run, copies are the true first are genuinely scarce, especially signed.
