First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, amusingly inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to the poet and literary critic Stephen Yenser and his wife: “Stephen and Lorna Yenser, You made Wisconsin perceptibly intenser than some states I’ve been once in. James Merrill (and goodbye; not for too long, I hope). Madison, 23.v.67.” Merrill dedicated to Yenser his final, posthumous collection, A Scattering of Salts (1995).

Octavo. Original pink cloth, titles to spine gilt and front board in blind. With the dust jacket. Spine slightly toned and gently rolled, occasional light foxing to contents; an excellent copy in the jacket with toned spine and slightly rubbed extremities.
