The Eternal Ones of the Dream
(NY), Ecco / HarperCollins, (2012). Selected poems, 1990-2010. From the library of James Tate, and together with two self-made advance copies, in which Tate photocopied his selected poems from six published books to assemble this book. One advance copy is single-sided with a color cover; one is double-sided with a black and white cover: each has three poems that did not make it into the final version: "The Rules," "The Midnight Ride," and "Jan's Scary Novel." Also, "Ghost Soldiers" and "Abducted" are reversed. The advance copies are spiralbound and fine; the book is fine in self-wrappers. Unique. [#034381] SOLD
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
