Garden City: Doubleday. 1970. A complimentary copy, with a Doubleday "Compliments of" card laid in signed by the author. A collection of concrete poetry, about which Richard Kostelanetz wrote in 1973: "Only one one-man collection of visual poetry... has ever been commercially published in the United States, even though 'concrete' is reportedly 'faddish'; and since that single book, N.H. Pritchard's The Matrix (1970), was neither reviewed nor touted, it seemed unlikely that any others would ever appear -- another example of how the rule of precedent in literary commerce produces de facto censorship." Dust jacket blurb by Allen Ginsberg, among others. Modest glue bleed to the hinges, light corner tap; near fine in a near fine dust jacket. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. (Inventory #: 032670)
