Fighting Terms. Poems.
Fantasy Press, Oxford 1954 - First Edition, second issue (incorporating a single minor textual correction to the poem 'Tamer and Hawk'). 44pp. Yellow cloth lettered and ruled in red at upper board. Cloth a little marked and handled. Endpapers really quite browned, yet otherwise an extremely fresh copy internally. Twenty-five poems, the author's first substantial book (and the first hardcover publication issued by the Fantasy Press). The first and second states comprised only 305 copies (the publisher Oscar Mellor believed the two states could be differentiated by the slightly different shade of yellow cloth they were bound in, but Gunn's bibliographer Jack Haystrom has suggested that this is probably not the case). No dust wrapper, as issued. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
