You Coul[d] Hear the Snow Dripping and Falling Into the Deers Mouth

Paris: The Dead Language, 1959. First edition. [22] pp. Stapled printed wrappers. Heliczer's first book, a collection of six poems. The photograph of the author by Harold Chapman folded around the upper text block is not present; apparently not all copies were issued with the photograph. However, this copy is signed by Heliczer on the final blank leaf- perhaps the signature serves the same purpose of authorship as the photograph, in a more direct fashion? Corners and edges a bit rubbed, small pencil ownership name on first endpaper. With an "avant propos" by Robert Graves, in which he says Heliczer's poems "read to me like a translation from a foreign language I would like to understand." The cover title lacks the "d" due to insufficient type available. Item #1801

Price: $950.00
