Notes

First edition of the author's first book, a collection of sixteen poems issued in the Pamphlet Series of Western Poets. Signed limited edition, this is one of 15 copies covered by the author at The Everson Printery, on 27 November 1935. This copy was presented to Miss Frances Wilson by the author on 19 December 1935, and was subsequently inscribed by him 44 years later on the inside front cover: "How astounding to find this specially bound copy of my first book, inscribed to my old college English teacher at Fresno State. She encouraged me to write, both when I first entered in 1931 and again when I returned in 1934. I owe her much. This second inscription for Gary Elder, fellow poet, writer, educator. Bill Everson, March 24, 1979. Newcastle, CA."
