GRACE NOTES

Author: Dove, Rita
Price: $35.00
Publisher Location: New York
Publisher: Norton
Year Published: 1989
Book Condition: Near fine
Edition: First edition
Printed lilac wrappers; small 8vo. An uncorrected proof copy in light purple wrappers, with three printed pages of biographical material and blurbs from Norton publicity laid in. Also, laid in is a glossy photo (c card) of the book jacket. Her fourth major collection (not counting two short chapbooks preceding her first "book", and a collection of stories); published after winning the Pulitzer Prize (the second black poet to do so) and before being selected U.S. Poet Laureate (the first and youngest). A very near fine copy with some light creasing, and in addition to the usual written in publication information (publication date, price, etc.), someone has written the word "poetry" at the top (looks to be the same hand).
