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.
Dark blue cloth hardcover with gilt stamped spine title and cover device, in a white dust jacket with blue print and a pen-and-ink illustration of a wolf. Review slip laid in. This is a moving narrative poem about an astronomer in Arizona who breaks his leg while backpacking, and whose life is saved by a pair of wolves who care for and warm him until he is found. Clarke's interest was in presenting the image of the American wolf in a positive light - playful, curious, bright, resoucesful, and loyal. This copy is fresh, clean, and tight; apparent unread and in a clean, fine-condition dust jacket.
