About this title

From Library Journal:

Underlying these poems, so full of memory and America, is musicthe foundation of all Justice's work. Two short sequences, "My South" and "American Scenes," provide a setting for the more personal poems that follow. Among them are elegies for a musician friend, an unknown poet, even his first piano teacher, Mrs. Snow, who reappears both in the poetry and in a prose memoir. Her lessons recur as well, for Justice is as attuned to sound as any poet writing today, blending a light-handed manipulation of rhythm and rhyme with conversational tone: "Hear the gulls. That's our local music./ I like it myself; and, as you can see,/ Our sunset maker studied with Bonnard." The prose, though interesting, is mere shadow to the poetry. This volume belongs in any large poetry collection. Louis McKee, English Dept., Judge Sch., Philadelphia

Store Description

I focus on intrinsically interesting, important, or unusual books in all fields. Specialties include popular culture; esoterica; modern & contemporary literature; John Steinbeck; The Beat & NY schools; poetry & small press; the avant-garde; little magazines & lit. journals (especially those associated with the Mimeo Revolution); manuscripts & archives; literary ephemera; Americana; as well as vernacular, folk, and outsider books of all kinds. A sense of the eclecticism I strive for can be seen in some of material I've recently handled. From an illuminated 15th-century manuscript Book of Hours to a collection of photographs and collages by Beat great William S. Burroughs, from a Yosemite tourist album containing some of the earliest images of a Sierra Club expedition to an important archive of letters from writer Henry Miller to his agent, I seek material that will fascinate and endure. I am always looking to purchase fine books in any of my areas of interest, from single titles to collections. Please inquire. Search and want services are available, as are appraisals and collection development. For three years I maintained an open shop in Monterey, CA (formerly the Cannery Row Old Book Co.). I now work in the Washington DC area and maintain office space in downtown Silver Spring MD. I am open by chance or appointment. I also exhibit regularly at book fairs around the country. Please check my website for upcoming events. To date, I've issued five catalogues of rare books. Copies may be downloaded on my website ( Print copies may also be requested.
