New York: Atheneum, 1965.
1st edition, full cloth, w/illustrated dj. A lovely copy of poet James Merrill's second novel, in complete (not price clipped) jacket. Mary McCarthy states on the jacket's front flap: "THE (DIBLOS) NOTEBOOK is charming--wry, puckered, like seersucker, or like what alum does to your mouth . . ." Further jacket notes include: "A young writer keeps a notebook, which records at one and the same time a series of happenings on the Greek island of Diblos in which he is deeply involved, and his attempts to transform these happenings into a novel." The finest copy of this publication we have seen. Fine condition. Item #5076
