Description

A Fine copy of the first US edition, first printing in the Publisher's original wrappers -- a Paperback Original (tiny bit of pushing to each wrap's leading corners -- still Fine), SIGNED BY PAUL MULDOON on the title page where he also has lined through his printed name, inscribed the book, and dated it in the year of publication; a collection of Paul Muldoon's Poems, being the US edition of the first publication of these Poems together in a single volume. Muldoon wrote the title poem, which recounts 1763's Pontiac's Rebellion by a loose federation of Native American tribes against the British, shortly before coming to the US. The Poem ends with a reference to the first recorded case of biological warfare wherein the British Officers at Fort Pitt endeavored to infect their besieging enemy with blankets exposed to smallpox. Muldoon's fifth collection of Poems, the book was simultaneously published in both hardcover and paperback. Signed copies in either binding are scarce. A Fine copy of this Paperback Original, SIGNED, INSCRIBED, AND CONTEMPORARILY DATED BY PAUL MULDOON. SCARCE.
