A Range of Poems
London, Fulcrum Press, (1967). Second printing of this volume of collected poems, identified on the copyright page as a "second edition." Includes the contents of Snyder's early volumes, Myths & Texts and Riprap & Cold Mountain Poems, as well as about half the poems that appeared later in the year in the collection The Back Country, plus one more group of unpublished poems. Inscribed (apparently twice) by Snyder to Clayton Eshleman: "For Clayton Eshleman from these days in Kyoto. Gary Snyder." And then: "until III 92/ with gratitude for his Bodhi Sattva generosity to poetry -- a life work --." With Eshleman's 1967 ownership signature. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with small chips at the spine extremities and the start of splitting to the folds there. A wonderful association copy between two poets and longtime friends.
