8vo. Offset printed on white pebbled paper and perfect bound in blue pebbled card wraps titled and printed in white. Limited to 1000 copies. The second edition of Stanford's first published book, originally published by Mill Mountain Press in 1971. This edition, published shortly after Stanford's death, adds two poems which did not appear in the 1971 edition, and also appends a 4 pp. afterword concerning Stanford's life and work. The cover and construction of the book differ considerably from both the first and subsequent edition. Very good with a bump to the head of spine and a touch of foxing to top edge.
