Berrigan, Daniel  
Selected & New Poems

Publisher: Doubleday Garden City NY 1973.
Black cloth hardcover, yelllow endpapers, in a photographic portrait dust jacket. 292 pages from the prolific priest who was a Vietnam war protestor, was part of a mission to Hanoi to plead for the release of three American pilots held prisoner, and something of a hero to the Flower Children of the Hippie era. He served time in prison for destroying draft files and later wrote a dramatization about the trial that was made into a movie. His poetry is sturdy, moving, and masterfully crafted. The book is Near Fine with only a tiny point or two of rubbing, ownership signature of a noted American poet on front free endpaper. The jacket is near fine with very light spots of edgewear and spots of mild surface abrasion on the rear panel.

Montoya

Publisher: Golden Quill Press, The Francetown New Hampshire 1987.
