New York: New Directions, (1949).
1st edition, full yellow cloth, with printed dust jacket. "A new book of verse by Kenneth Patchen is always an eagerly awaited event in the dry desert of modern American poetry . . . Patchen really communicates to the heart" (from the jacket notes). Published by James Laughlin at his New Directions publishing house, the text includes forty poems. Due to the pale yellow cloth and jacket, clean copies are seldom found. The present offering is uncommonly bright, clean and fine. Item #5657
