** Image clicks to enlarge.

Author: Hecht, Anthony
Price: $250.00
Publisher Location: New York
Publisher: Atheneum
Year Published: 1979
Book Condition: Fine
Edition: First edition
First edition. Inscribed on the half-title: "For Mark [Strand]/ and Jules -- /with esteem and affection/Tony". First issued as a limited edition by Godine, this is the expanded, hardcover trade issue, issued also in trade paper. Only the third book in a distinguished career. Fine in a dust jacket a bit sunned along the top edges, the spine faded. A lovely copy and a very desirable association, both poets near contemporaries and both winners of major prizes: Pulitzer, Bollingen, etc., and both appointed to the position of what is now called Poet Laureate.
