Merrill, James THE COUNTRY OF A THOUSAND YEARS OF PEACE And Other Poems
New York: Alfred A Knopf, 1959. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Pages mildly age-toned, else fine, in rose-pink cloth with blind-debossed lettering to front, gilt lettering to spine; in a good only dust jacket: worn, rubbed, nicked, with edge-tears, tanning, patches of stain, and soiling.
"Each of his poems is a genuinely individual experience of form, sound, movement, tone and metaphoric statement."--Richard Wilbur.  pages.
