Brockport NY: BOA Editions, 1977.
1st edition, full red cloth, with printed dust jacket. The true first printing, one of only 450 bound in cloth. The author's third collection of poems. Snodgrass won the first $1000 Ingram Merrill Foundation award for poetry in manuscript form, and subsequently the Pulitzer Prize in poetry, for his first book, HEART'S NEEDLE (Knopf, 1959). The present offering represents the very first title published by BOA Editions. Still wrapped in the publisher's clear shrink wrap, new and unopened. Uncommon thus. Item #6608
