The Man Among The Seals

Iowa City: The Stonewall Press, 1969. First Edition, one of 260 copies in brown cloth with paper spine labels and no jacket as issued. Association copy, INSCRIBED by the author to his first wife Lucinda (whose nickname was Louie) on the title page: "For Louie my love / - so I don't take it back again - / DJ / the human weirdo."

The author's first book, a collection of poetry written at the age of 20, only at the beginning of his academic career, which would go on to include an association with Raymond Carver. His second collection, "Inner Weather," would not follow until 1976. A superb association.

Very Good plus, moderately sunned at the spine and around the edges, with a small scrape on the spine label affecting only the first "o" in Johnson.
