New York: Braziller, (1973). First Edition. 8vo. Original gold (duh) cloth. Fine in near fine jacket. Jacket has touches of rubbing and a bit of toning at edges. Unclipped. Clean and sharp overall. INSCRIBED by Bidart to GOLDEN STATE's editor and designer Harry Ford: "To Harry Ford, / grateful for his beautiful job on this book - / Frank Bidart / July 5, 1973." (Item ID: 13614)

Ford was an almost unique figure in the American poetry community. Long-time poetry editor at both Knopf and Braziller (as well as Atheneum), he is singular in that he also designed many of the books he edited and thus helped define not only the taste but also the visual style of mainstream American poetry in the second half of the last century. These dual gifts made him much-beloved among poets, for whom he could help mold a volume into a seemless whole of form and content. Ford edited and designed collections for Elizabeth Bishop, Donald Justice, Philip Levine, W.S. Merwin, and (as here) Bidart. Bidart's debut collection, containing arguably his most famous poem, the chilling "Herbert White."
