African Bestiary of Kenya & Zanzibar, Barnstone, Willis [Jim Harrison]
3 Barnstone, Willis [Jim Harrison] African Bestiary of Kenya & Zanzibar
Plastic Fine Signed
Quarto (28 cm), pp. 145. Association copy, signed and simply inscribed by the author to the late poet and novelist Jim Harrison on dedication page: "for Jim- Willis." This bound galley is a collection of 58 poems with ink drawings by Barnstone that does not appear to have been published in its entirety, though nine of the poems and accompanying artwork were featured in the Summer 2008 edition of New Letters. Harrison once praised Barnstone's work saying, "If there were any justice, which there probably isn't, the world of letters would erect a monument of Willis Barnstone and strew it with fresh wildflowers every day." (Orr and Torrey, p. 208). Barnstone is a Biblical and Gnostic scholar as well as a memoirist, poet, literary critic, and a contemporary of Jorge Luis Borges, with whom he collaborated on a series of translations.

The Moon Cracks Open  A Field Guide to Birds and Other Poems, Beaudin, Marc
4 Beaudin, Marc The Moon Cracks Open A Field Guide to Birds and Other Poems
Beaudin 2008 160458307X / 9781604583076 First edition Paperback New Signed
Octavo (21.5 cm), pp. 66. Brand new, signed by author on title page. "Beaudin delivers another fine collection of poems from the heartland. Like Roethke, the poems are rooted in the soil, sung from thickets and hooted in the night. Unlike Roethke, Beaudin reveals a nomad's soul with distant mountains tugging at his open heart. This book should best be read at the edge of a swamp or high on a wooded hillside. I haven't enjoyed such singing since Jim Harrison came west" -- Doug Peacock. First Edition.
