SIGNED. 158pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] Blue cloth over boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine, and a gilt stamped floral vignette on the front cover. Red and white floral endsheets. Very good. Mildly bumped and rubbed at the spine ends and edges of the covers. There is a bookseller's sticker on the rear pastedown, and there is a small ink stamp at the foot of the title page. The dust jacket is in good condition, with a number of small closed and open tears in the edges. There is a small open tear in the surface of the jacket's spine, obscuring only a minor amount of the title. There is a piece of tape on the front panel, and there are a couple pieces of tape on the verso of the jacket.
Blanding is also the author of "Vagabond's House" and Hula Moons." Illustrations by the author. Inscribed by Don Blanding, Hawaiian Poet Laureate, on the recto of the frontispiece portrait.
