Book Description Follett Publishing, Chicago, 1968. First edition. 61 pp., 8vo. Cloth-patterned paper over boards, in illustrated dust-jacket (featuring one of Harry Callahan's Eleanor photographs). Poems by Bill Knott, published under the pseudonym "Saint Geraud." Volume One of the Big Table Series of Younger Poets. Scarce first book by this always provocative poet; the back cover blurb reads, "Of himself the author says: 'Bill Knott (1940-1966) is a virgin and a suicide.'" A lovely copy; the book as new and seemingly unread, the jacket very lightly scuffed but otherwise fine. Bookseller Inventory # 3820
