One of 1000 copies printed. A collection of short stories, most of which first appeared in The New Yorker. This copy Inscribed by Merwin to his editor at The New Yorker Rachel MacKenzie: "For Rachel who had more than she would ever admit in this book's being as it is, Her Copy with much love from Bill. New York Oct 26 1977." Rachel MacKenzie replaced Katherine White as the fiction editor at The New Yorker, on the latter's retirement, on the recommendation of May Sarton. During her tenure at the magazine MacKenzie was noted for her nurturing and editing of, among others, Sarton, Philip Roth, Muriel Spark, and especially Isaac Bashevis Singer. MacKenzie's enthusiasm led to the magazine devoting an entire issue to Spark's The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. However, the magazine wouldn't publish Goodbye, Columbus as she recommended because William Shawn was too squeamish over the more "frank" aspects of the novella. A nice association.
