54pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Decorative blue paper covered boards with a silver stamped title on the spine, and a blind stamped title on the front cover. Very good. The spine ends are bumped. In a very good dust jacket, with subtle rubbing and yellowing. The edges have a handful of chips and a small loss. The loss measures 1 and 1/4" wide by 3/4" deep. There is a brief numerical notation on the top edge of the front inside flap.
Signed by the author on the front free endsheet. From the dust jacket- "This collection of twenty-four poems reveals the range and power of a young Southern poet whose work is characterized by a tensile strength and a coldly factual style which beneath the surface carries great passion."
