Very Good / Very Good. Item #9961
New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1964. First Edition. Octavo; 319pp. Illustrated dust jacket with $4.95 price intact; book in blue cloth with gilt lettering. Jacket is worn and toned along edges, with a few small, closed tears (repaired internally with tape), bumping to spine ends, and some smudging to back. Vertical creases to front and back flaps. Boards are square with some fading along top edge. Gilt lettering to spine mostly faded to black. Book opens easily between gatherings, but binding is holding soundly. Pages unmarked.
Basis for the 1966 Irvin Kershner film starring a Bond-era Sean Connery as the hapless poet protagonist.
