First Edition [1978], unstated, in accordance with Christopher's customary practice. Very Good+ in Wraps: shows indications of very careful use: just a hint of wear to the extremities; the mildest rubbing and very faint soiling to the wrapper covers; the former owner's last name at the top of the front endpaper; the binding is square and secure; the text is clean. Not perfect, but remains close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 60 pages + Four Pages of Notes on the Translations. Trade Paperback. This was the book that brought Rexroth some notoriety when it was published in 1978; he claimed to be translating a female japanese poet, but this book is in fact written by REXROTH HIMSELF. After spending so much of himself in helping others, such as Yosano Akiko, he was able to distill his deep appreciation for the eastern aesthetic into these deeply felt erotic poems. He really put his heart and soul into this one, and it's a shame it has never been reprinted in its entirety, only fragments here and there in anthologies. Bookseller Inventory # 46185
