Price: $75.00
Publisher Location: Athens
Publisher: The Univ. of Georgia Press
Year Published: 1975
Book Condition: Very good
Edition: First edition
Cloth in dust jacket; 8vo. 77 pp. The scarce hardcover issue of a sequence of poems he wrote in the early 50's when an inmate at the White Plains, NY mental hospital known as Bloomingdale. The manuscript had been thought lost. The top edge has been thumbed a few too many times and the head of the spine has worn through to the board; the rest of the cloth shows very little wear. There is a black mark (remainder?) on the bottom edge. The jacket except wear to the head of the spine area and a 1/2" closed tear at the top edge is fine.
