Very slight wear to edges and corners of boards and dust jacket. Spine of dj slightly sunned. Copper Canyon describes the book as : "The only authorized English translation of Pablo Neruda's AUN. Confronted with his own mortality, Neruda wrote these twenty-eight cantos in two days in July 1969, an inward expedition to find his deepest roots. The poet evokes the Araucanian Indians and the conquistadores who tried to enslave them, while drawing heavily upon Chilean folklore, the places and people of his childhood, and the sights and smells of the marketplace." Wood engraving frontis by Jim Todd. Printed by Sam Hamill, Binding by Marsha Hollingsworth. Uncommon, and a very attractive volume. Fine / very good. Item #18620
