Boston: David R.Godine, 1987. First Edition. Poems. Signed & dated in year of publication by Doty on the title-page. Doty has also penned a warm inscription on the half-title page to a good friend, expressing both delight and genuine pleasure in that friend's work and their friendship. Stated first edition, first printing, with no mention of any further printing on copyright page. Scarce first book by this noted poet - especially so in the hardcover issue. 8vo white cloth. Slight even darkening to pastedowns, else a fine copy in a near-fine dj that has a few minor nicks, and a sliver of wear at top of spine, but is else excellent. The price in unclipped.
