Poems 1947-1954

San Francisco: Adrian Wilson, 1954. First edition. 82 pp. Decorated paper boards over cloth backstrip, printed label on spine, with wraparound band. Lower corners slightly rubbed, else fine.

An interesting bibliographical oddity. The book has the colophon page noting it as one of the twenty-five limited edition copies (this is number 6, hand-numbered), and it is printed on Arches paper as called for (as opposed to Strathmore for the regular edition), but it does not have the bound-in drawing. A small notation on the dedication page in pencil, "Kenyon Review 1956-57 Blanket Fee 1-14-57" with a small date stamp of Feb 14 '57, leads one to think that perhaps this was an extra copy printed on the nicer paper sent out for review (albeit received three years later). A beautiful copy in any version. Item #2029

Price: $850.00
