Pictures of the Gone World

Ferlinghetti's first book, and The Pocket Poets Series: Number One -- the first book in the long-lived and highly influential Pocket Poets series, published by Ferlinghetti out of his City Lights bookstore. One of 500 copies in wrappers. Bit of glue-darkening to the yellow wraparound cover label; near fine in wrappers. A nice copy of a landmark publication. [#034830] $750
