First edition in English, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed the author on the front free endpaper "To Karl Shapiro, from his first translator into Polish, twenty years ago. Cordially Czeslaw Milosz, Berkeley, Jan. 13, 1969".

A nice literary association - Milosz was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1978, while Shapiro held the position of United States Poet Laureate in 1946-7. The inscription refers to the fact that in the early post-war years Milosz was interested in doing a Polish-language anthology of contemporary American and British poetry, including Shapiro's writings, though the project never came to fruition. Native Realm, Milosz's autobiography of his childhood, was first published in Polish in 1959.
