Yale, 1954. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. A very good first edition in a very good dust jacket of the author's second book of poetry. Original price of $2.75 still present on the front flap of the dust jacket. One of the best American poets of the 20th Century. 1954 stated on title page and no mention of later printings on the copyright page.
