Santa Barbara: Black Sparrow, 1983. First Edition. 8vo. Fine with only barest traces of shelfwear. Clean, bright, and sharp overall. Limited edition, this number 122 of 125 copies signed by author and Duncan. Additionally inscribed by Duncan to poet Carl Rakosi and his wife: "For Carl and Leah / This lame-brained German [sic] / prosaic account of my adventures / in Bohemia [slash] and some country clubs / with love / Robert." Item #13088
An honest and revealing inscription in this biography by its subject. Rakosi and Duncan were long-time friends, reading together and even once embarking on a brief reading tour of sorts together in the late 70's. A strong association between these two poetic peers, with an important inscription.
