Buffalo, NY: White Pine Press, 2001. First Edition Thus. Softcover. "Few writers are as integrally bound to a place as Pablo Neruda was to the landscape of Isla Negra. From his arrival there in the late '30s to his death in 1973, Isla Negra became a text that unraveled in a series of essential images that are fundamental to an understanding of his mature work." (from back cover) A collection of poems by the canonical Chilean poet Pablo Neruda (1904-1973), divided into three titled sections, each a selection from a previous collection. All the poems relate to Isla Negra, the enchanting place in Chile where Neruda mostly lived from 1938 until his death. Translated from the Spanish language into English by Maria Jacketti, Dennis Maloney (also the editor of this volume) & Clark Zlotchew. Smaller-format softcover original first edition thus. From the library of Thomas Rain Crowe, the acclaimed poet & publisher who was at the center of the Baby Beat Generation/ Second San Francisco Renaissance during the 1970s (see our book, Starting from San Francisco, item no. 3071, Deluxe Edition No. 3075). Loosely included between pages 38 & 39 where Crowe left it is a bookmark from Malaprop's Bookstore-Cafe in Asheville, NC. Crowe was born, raised & has long returned to live in rural North Carolina & is profoundly attached to its land & people. A desirable Neruda collectible for the English-reader with good, kindred poet-to-poet association & provenance. In very fine condition with a tiny bit of rubbing to front, back covers & spine; a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same. Interior very fine with only tiny, faint creases at upper corners of some page leaves. Ephemera very fine, printed on both sides, with only small, faint crease at lower right corner of recto. Very Fine. [Item #3763]
