First edition. Ownership signature and blindstamp of convicted book forger Kenneth Anderson, else near fine in a lightly rubbed, very good plus dustwrapper. Brief Typed Letter Signed by Ammons to a minor poet laid in, offering to sign the book (with original envelope), however, the book is not signed. We purchased the book and letter, written in response to another, directly from the recipient, so unless, in addition to his other depredations, Anderson was stealing Ammons's mail and answering it for him, we believe that the letter is authentic.
