London, Fortune Press, (1967). A volume of poetry by this Gloucester, MA, poet who was a longtime friend and sometime rival of poet Charles Olson, who directed a critical part of The Maximus Poems at Ferrini. Ferrini's response was a 30-page love poem, which was published as In the Arriving and which Olson later said was Ferrini's best book. Despite a rivalry that has been characterized as "brotherly," they remained close friends throughout Olson's life. Inscribed by the author: "____/ the heart of the book/ Vincent." The recipient's name was deliberately abraded by the recipient. Fine in a near fine, modestly edgeworn dust jacket. [#016201] $350
Storrs, University of Connecticut, 1976. Inscribed by the author to the poet Edward Hyland "who's got the goods!" in 1978. Rubbing to the covers near the spine; else near fine in wrappers. A nice association copy between the Gloucester poet and Hyland, the poet from Manchester, who was one of the youngest writers to attend Breadloaf when he was 17 years old. [#033166] $75
