THE WELDER'S ARC: poems
Edition: First Edition
Kingston, ON: Quarry Press, 1969. Octavo, orange cloth, spine gilt lettered, without jacket, as issued. pp (31). Thin covers a bit bowed; tanning to margins of verso of rear free endpaper (offset from binding materials I think), else fine. "Printed at The Basement Cage Press, Queen's University at Kingston, Ontario, by the students enrolled in English 800, as an excercise in bibliography...This edition is limited to fifty copies, signed by the author." This is copy #21. Not a good print job. The poet's first book, very scarce in the limited issue. Doesn't contain the Ken Tolmie illustrations contained in the 1969 trade paper issue. Note: light parcel, any default shipping may be reduced.
