Notes

First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "For Francis Mattson, Robert Lowell"; the recipient is almost certainly the Curator of the Berg Collection, New York Public Library. Life Studies, including one of Lowell's most celebrated poems, "Skunk Hour", was originally published in the UK in the same year.
