1 Dickey, James Eagle's Mile, The
Hanover NH Wesleyan Poetry 1990 1st Thus Soft Cover Near Fine No Jacket 
This offering from James Dickey, the author of 'Deliverance' is the first paperback edition after the hardcover first. It is in trade paperback format and is a small quarto. The book contains many examples of Dickey's poetry. Dickey is primarily a poet and if you have only read his novel you are missing much of the power and lyricism of his writing. This book is in very near-fine conditon and is a fairly scarce offering. There is some very minor turning of the front wrap at the outside corners. They are very, very small and really do not detract. John Updike calls Dickey the "High Flier of American Poets, in 'The Eagle's Mile' he is flying higher than ever, so high the earth is reduced to its elements, its essential radiance" An inspiring work of poetry..

California Lord John Press 1978 First Edition Decorative Cloth As New No Jacket Signed by Author
The Enemy from Eden is written by James Dickey and Illustrated by Ron Sauter. Dickey is one of our most prolific Poets but is probably best known for his novel 'Deliverance'. This volume is written in prose but in very Poetic form. It is comprised of a series of vignettes that are beautifully illustrated. It is bound in a lovely colored pattern that is reminiscent of Marbled Antique endpapers. The title and author are printed in gilt on the front board. This First edition was limited to 275 copies of which this volume is number 183. The paper is made of Vicksburgh Vellum and the book was designed and printed by Grant Dahlstrom for the Lord John Press. It is a very fine and collectible book.

For over five decades, James Dickey has been one of the nation's most important poets and a prominent man of letters. The New York Times has declared that 'Dickey continues to extend his vision as a major American poet". 'The Whole Motion' collects Dickey's work into a single volume. There are 235 poems ranging from his first book,'Into the Stone' to 'The Eagle's Mile which was a triumphant success and a bold and innovative departure from his traditional verse. The book is in Very Fine condition with no bumps or soiling. It looks new. This is a First edition and First printing. It is inscribed on the half-title page and it reads 'To James from James Dickey' all written in his flamboyant style. The dustjacket is also Fine and it is not price-clipped. There is no price because this is a university publication and they very rarely list prices. The dustjacket is whole and beautiful. This is the ultimate book for the James Dickey reader and will be enjoyed for generations. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
