San Francisco: Privately Printed [Jane and Robert Grabhorn], 1961. Limited Edition. Hardcover. One of 75 copies, large octavo size, 47 pp. Near fine. Item #17100526
The poems in this book were published posthumously, from a selection of over 200 poems written in the two years before the author's death of leukemia in 1960. Loosely laid into the book is the card of Rabbi Irving Frederick Reichert, presumably the author's husband; we assume it was a gift from him to the prior owner.
