About this Item

Original Wraps. Very Good. First edition, first printing, no additional printing noted, the issue in wraps. There was also a simultaneous clothbound issue which is scarce. Would be a fine copy but for a previous owner's address on half title blacked out with crayon, otherwise a clean, tight and straight copy. Bookseller Inventory # 000188

About this title


This collection of poems has a subject matter ranging from the gustatory pleasures of osso buco to an analysis of the handwriting of Keats; from the art form of the calendar pinup to blues music.

To celebrate his years as U.S. Poet Laureate, The University of Pittsburgh Press is pleased to announce these special limited editions, in hardcover, of the books that helped establish and secure his reputation during the 1990s.
