...A Limited Edition of two hundred fifty copies, numbered 1 to 250, An Evergreen Book of Poetry (E-20). This is copy 165 signed by George Reavey.
First edition, wrapperbound issue, after 276 copies specially bound. LO P 1154 is an association copy of the first order of Reavey's first American poetry collection, signed by him on the title, and inscribed by him on the half-title to novelist, Jerzy Kosinski : 'To Jerzi / In all the strange / patterns of our minds / the best of many worlds / George.' Reavey's claim (never definitively established) that he was intimately involved in the production of the English text of Kosinski's novel, 'The Painted Bird,' attended the general controversy about Kosinski's writing methods catalyzed by the June 1982 'Village Voice' report by Geoffrey Stokes and Eliot Fremont-Smith.
