FLOYD, Bryan Alec
The Long War Dead
(NY), Avon, (1976). Poems, written as epitaphs to the dead of an imaginary company. Simple, direct, and moving. Published as a paperback original by the most literary of the mass-market publishers, and later reprinted in a trade paperback by Permanent Press. Several of the poems were included in the anthology Unaccustomed Mercy, but the complete text is difficult to find in any edition and scarce in the true first. This copy is inscribed by Floyd to the poet Ai, winner of the National Book Award. Slight edge and corner rubbing; near fine in wrappers. One of the books on our list of the 25 Best Book on the Vietnam War. [#028636] $250
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
