The Undersea Mountain.
Denver: Alan Swallow,, 1953. Octavo. Original grey boards, front board lettered in black. With the dust jacket. Spine head and tips slightly bumped. An excellent copy in the bright dust jacket, spine end slightly creased, a small mark to front panel. First edition, first printing, presentation copy inscribed by the poet, "May 1, 1953 For Howard, With love, Harold". This copy has an appropriate later association for the gay poet's first collection, with the ownership inscription, "Winston Leyland, His Copy". Leyland (b.1940) was a leading figure in American LGBT publishing who won the Stonewall Book Award in 1980. He established the Gay Sunshine Press in 1975, and his Gay Sunshine Journal (1970-82) was particularly influential for its interviews with prominent gay writers of the era. In 1977 the press published Norse's collection Carnivorous Saint: Gay Poems 1941-1976.
