NY, Alicat Bookshop Press, 1948. Alicat Chapbooks No. XII. Willeford's first book, a collection of poems, preceded only by a group of poems in broadside format, issued as part of another Alicat Press collection. These poems contain the only descriptions Willeford ever committed to writing of his experience in World War II, which, by the evidence included here and by comments he made to others about them, were apparently horrific. Acidic paper browning with age and some wear to spine; otherwise near fine in stapled wrappers. [#006648] $150
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
