Ashes. Poems New & Old.

N. Y. Atheneum, 1979. First trade edition, a paperback original. Presentation copy, inscribed by the poet to his brother Eli: "Dec. 8, '79, Eli, guess which guy is Phil - the one on the front - the Satanic Rabbi, as Eddie once called me in my beard sans Talis - or the city boy on the back? Wrong! I'm in the middle. Love, Phil". The front cover reproduces a drawing of a rabbi by Flavio Costantini, the rear cover reproduces a photograph of PL by Thomas Victor. The book is also signed by PL on the title-page. Spine faded, otherwise a very good copy. 8vo, original glossy wrappers.
