Thin 8vo.; brown cloth, stamped in gilt in dust jacket. Near fine in an about fine dust jacket. Inscribed on the title page: "With all best wishes for William Jay Smith." and signed in full by the poet . Smith has marked most pages in pencil, a few in short ink lines. Bishop and Smith were near contemporaries, both serving as Consultants to the Librarian of Congress, both with an interest in and translators of Latin American literature. A nice association copy of the poet's last collection; one of 7500 copies printed. Although the book is not uncommon (nor the jacket), Bishop's signature is one of the least common of the major poets of her era. MacMahon A13.
