Offsetting on the rear endpages from the laid in full page New York Times piece on Hariot (mentioning Rukeyser's book). Hariot was a friend of Sir Walter Ralegh and Christopher Marlowe and seems to have been one of the greatest figures of his or anytime, but due to having published only one book mostly lost to history. Aside from the offsetting a fine copy of a bulky book in a near fine dust jacket, with very light soiling and one worn tip (in removable protective mylar covers).
