Port Reyes Station, California: Floating Island Publications, 1981.
First Edition. Paperback. 9" X 6". 42pp. Edition limited to 500 copies. Signed and inscribed by the author to half-title with a signed, handwritten letter to the book's recipient laid in. A touch of shelfwear, light dust soiling, and light toning to pictorial wraps, else fine in tight, sound binding with uncreased spine and bright, clean, unmarked pages. The letter includes the author's remarks on The Golden Legend, his first book, and references the author's review of Jonathan Williams' Blues & Roots, Rue & Bluets: A Garland for the Appalachians and his relationship with Williams. A very nice, unique first printing copy of Jeffery Beam's first book. Near fine. Item #1600
