New York: Knopf, 1941,. 1st edition, limited (1/1000) numbered, full blue cloth, with printed dust jacket. The author's first book, a presentation copy specially inscribed with two lines of verse and signed "Ted Roethke" on the FEP in bold green ink. Inscribed to Henry Clepper who was an influential and active member of the American forestry community. Clepper was the author and editor of several books, including the highly respected ORIGINS OF AMERICAN CONSERVATION (Ronald Press Company, 1966); and for whom the Henry Clepper Forest Policy Internship (Warnell School of Forestry at University of Georgia) was named. In 1957 Clepper won the Gifford Pinchot Medal. The present offering is one of the lower limitation numbers, and in the first issue binding. The complete (not price clipped) jacket has a closed tear mended by tape and a small moderate chip to the foot of the spine. Otherwise the book and cloth binding is fine, with very little wear. Roethke won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1954 and the National Book Award in 1959. Uncommon in the potentially fragile jacket, and especially so signed with two lines of verse.
