New York: Grove Press, 1964. A very good copy in a very good, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is tight and sturdy, light shelfwear and faint sunning to boards. Internally clean. Jacket shows minor edgewear with a closed tear near spine crown, rubbing to front panel, scattered toning, protected in archival mylar. A nice copy.
