The Battlefield Where the Moon Says I Love You

Stanford, Frank


Mill Mountain Press/Lost Roads Publishing



542 pages. Illustrated perfect-bound wrappers. First Edition.

Illustrated perfect-bound wrappers. Some rubbing and minor soiling to covers, spine a bit creased, very minor yellowing to prelims, but overall clean and tight. Of this book Ben Ehrenreich wrote, "The world of Stanford's imagination- that 'unknown country where my dreams jump and shout'- found its fullest expression in the work for which he is best known, The Battlefield Where the Moon Says I Love You. Like the lost text of some esoteric faith, many people have heard of it, but few have laid eyes on a copy. The Battlefield is a single poem, almost entirely unpunctuated, more than 500 pages long in its first edition, and until its reprinting in 2000 almost impossible to find."

Donated by Triolet Rare Books, Cleveland Heights OH.


Lot Amendments

Spine a bit creased; covers rubbed and soiled; overall very good.
