Kansas City, Sheed Andrews McMeel, (1976). A review copy of his first book, a collection of "narrative contemplations" of the desert, told in a poetic, lucid prose, the clarity and simplicity of which is uncommonly suited to the subtleties of perception and expression it contains. Foxing to top edge and mild bowing to boards; near fine in a very near fine dust jacket with slight corner wear and a small star on the front flap. A very nice copy, with almost none of the rubbing that typically afflicts this dust jacket. Review slip and publicity sheet laid in. [#027031] $300
