Fayetteville: University of Arkansas Press, 1988. First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed and dated in 1997 by Billy Collins on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. The hardcover edition is uncommon. In 1988 the University of Arkansas Press published Billy Collinss The Apple That Astonished Paris, his "first real book of poems," as Collins describes it in a new, delightful preface written expressly for this new printing to help celebrate both the Presss twenty-fifth anniversary and this book, one of the Presss all-time best sellers. This collection includes some of Collinss most anthologized poems, including "Introduction to Poetry," "Another Reason Why I Dont Keep a Gun in the House," and "Advice to Writers."
