N.p., 1975. Item #2941

Hand-sewn in printed wrappers. This is the poet's first book, marking her re-entrance to the New York City literary community after extensive global travels in Morocco, Nairobi, Egypt, Ethiopia, Europe, and beyond.

This is from an edition of 100 copies, printed letterpress at the Oliphant Press in New York. The poet's first book. A bright, sharp, very near fine copy.
