Los Angeles, CA: Black Sparrow Press, 1971. First Limited Trade Edition. Softcover. An early volume of poems by James Koller (1936-2014), the esteemed American Poet, novelist & publisher.

He knew the great Beat Generation- San Francisco Renaissance poets, collaborated with them & published some of their works, but his own style here & throughout his long, prolific career is quite unique to himself. This is the first trade edition, an early, exemplary Black Sparrow production limited to 800 copies as noted on colophon. A key Koller collectible, & an excellent working copy.
