Publisher Location: Pittsburgh
Publisher: University of Pittsburgh Press
Year Published: 1972
Book Condition: Fine
Edition: First edition
Orange cloth in dust jacket; small 8vo. 62 pp. A beautiful copy of the first book by the award-winning poet (among other awards, his second book won the Lamont Poetry Prize) who died in 1996 at the age of 49. This is the scace hardcover issue, uncommon in any format. Levis was championed by fellow Californian Philip Levine who edited his posthumously published final book Elegy. A very fine copy, the orange cloth bright; in a very near fine complete (not price-clipped) dust jacket with a few short cratches/squiggles on the front panel (likely the usual enemy - someone writing on a piece of paper using the book as a desk), but in brodart cover not noticeable. With none of the usual rubbing or spine wear common to these thin covers.
