The Fish on Poteau Mountain
DeKalb, Cedar Creek, 1980. The uncorrected proof copy of the first book, a collection of poems, by this writer of Choctaw-English-Welsh descent. Printed on rectos only, apparently shot from paste up, with lines around text, faint copy-editing, and occasionally typos, evident. Bradbound plain blue covers, with typed label for title. Tape over rear brads. Name and address stamp on first blank. Near fine. The trade edition of this book is uncommon; the proof exceedingly so: we have never seen another copy. [#033918] $450
