Middletown, Wesleyan University Press, (1967). Inscribed by Justice to James Tate: "This copy is for JIM TATE who has honed his own edge/ Don Justice/ March 1967." Tate's first book, The Lost Pilot was published the same year in the prestigious Yale Younger Poets series. One change made to the text on p. 21, apparently in Justice's hand. Near fine in a very good, rubbed, and internally foxed dust jacket. An excellent association. [#033635] SOLD
