The Poetry Miscellany Vol. 2 No. 1 (Fall/Winter, 1972-73)

Williamstown, MA: The Poetry Miscellany, 1972. First Printing. Stapled Wrappers. Signed by Diane Wakoski. This somewhat early number of the Massachusetts poetry journal features two poems by Diane Wakoski, the acclaimed & prolific poet who has long resided in Michigan. The poems, "Gold" & "Some Constantly Beseiged Castle," are both subtitled & dedicated "for the King of Spain." At the top of the first poem "Gold," Wakoski has hand-written her signature with characteristic series of vertical doodles below her printed name (pg. 22). Also in this issue are contributions by Barbara Howes & other esteemed poets; & reviews of contemporary volumes by poets, including Howes & Wakoski by Sharon Tower. A very rare & collectible issue in this venerable series, especially with the signature of one of its most distinguished contributors. In very fine condition with only moderate browning/ sunning to blank margins, edges of front, back covers & to stapled spine; very light wear & a few tiny bumps, creases at edges & corners of same; very light rubbing & browning to edges of text block. Interior very fine with only a touch of light browning at blank margins of page leaves; tiny bumps mostly at upper corners of same. Very Fine. [Item #3427]
