(NY), New Rivers Press, 1974. The scarce hardcover issue of his second book, a collection of poetry. The total edition was 600 copies, of which only 200 were issued in cloth; 400 were issued in wrappers. Well-known these days as a writer of fiction and of essays on fiction, Baxter didn't publish his first novel until 1987, seventeen years after his first book (Chameleon) and thirteen years after this title. Inscribed by the author in 1982. Fine in a slightly rubbed, else fine dust jacket. [#911007] $1,000

Fine in wrappers. [#911350] $175

A well-received collection of stories, which was the author's first book from a major trade publisher, after a couple of poetry chapbooks and a story collection from a university press.
