** Image clicks to enlarge.

Author: Garrett, George and Willis Barnstone ed. {Richard Wilbur, signed by)
Price: $95.00
Publisher Location: Middletown, CT
Publisher: Wesleyan University
Year Published: 1960
Book Condition: Very good
Edition: First edition
Corrugated covers in plain printed jacket; square 8vo. 52 pp. An attractive program printing poems by some of the attendees including Philip Booth, Donald Justice, Stanley Kunitz, William Meredith, Charles Olson, Theodore Roethke, and James Wright. Faculty poems include those by Ruth Stone and Richard Wilbur. Highlights of the festival were two plays of William Carlos Williams and an assembly with Robert Frost (apparently closing the celebration), but no work included by them here. Signed by Richard Wilbur at his contribution (on the last page): Wilbur's poem "Grasshopper" did not appear until 1961 in a collection, so this would presumably constitute the first book appearance. Nicely printed on dark brown paper with corrugated end papers. Toning to the spine, light soiling, very good. Scarce and rare signed by Wilbur.
