Bloomington, Indiana U. Press, (1961). The first regularly published book, a collection of poems, by a writer whose work is strongly associated with the Pacific Northwest and who later won the Pulitzer Prize. This is cloth issue, and is inscribed by the author to Oscar (Williams) "with love" in 1963. Williams is best-known as an anthologist but began by writing poetry: he won the Yale Younger Poets Award in 1921. A nice association copy of an important first collection. In addition to the inscription on the front flyleaf, Kizer has also added her contact information on the rear flyleaf. Fine in a near fine, spine-faded, price-clipped dust jacket. [#006460] $150
Port Townsend, Copper Canyon, 1984. The uncommon uncorrected proof copy of these "poems for women." Stapled sheets with a black tape spine. A low-tech production, suggesting very few were done. Kizer won the Pulitzer Prize the following year, for her collection Yin. Fine, with publisher's promotional sheet laid in. [#014851] $125
Port Townsend, Copper Canyon Press, 1984. A collection of "Poems for Woman." Inscribed by Kizer to Pauline Kael in January, 1986: "For Pauline, a thin response to her fine fat new book! Love, Carolyn." Kael's Taking It All In had been published in 1984. This is the simultaneous issue in wrappers of Kizer's book; fine. [#022730] $60
Garden City, NY, Doubleday, 1971. Very Good in Very Good DJ. [#703974] $20
