Condition: Near Fine Condition/Very Good Dust Jacket

New York: Harper & Row, 1962. Green printed design on paper over boards, hardcover in similar dust jacket. 94 + (1) pages. Lacks the first edition statement, so this is a subsequent printing (no printing number indicated). Stafford needs no introduction or recommendation - quite simply "the best"! Book is near fine with a small wear-through spot on bottom edge. (Actually looks like nibbles from tiny little rodent teeth.) Dust jacket is still very good with a couple of spots on the very bottom edge with similar nibbles (small bits of paper missing) and a one-inch closed tear at top edge, clean and tidy in a Mylar wrapper. POETRY 3751. Later Printing. Hard Cover. Near Fine Condition/Very Good Dust Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Poetry.
