Poems for Herb Gold
Self-Published, [ca. 1980s]. A collection of 12 poems, velobound, in gold-stamped plastic covers, by a writer who was closely involved with the San Francisco Bay Area literary scene for decades. Herbert Gold was one of the many writers who made his home in the Bay Area during that time, and this collection includes one poem titled after each of Gold's books of fiction up until 1980 (with one book un-poemed). Near fine. Unmarked, but from the library of Peter Matthiessen. Unusual, highly uncommon artifact of one of the great literary centers of postwar America. [#032278] $150

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
