(8),1-149,(1). 8vo, prin ted white card covers with red lettering to front cover and spine. "In thiscollection of poems, new and old, various distances visit each other; the past solicits the present and is re-interpreted; his rural world of Essex, England, is juxtaposed with Montreal and the countryside of Quebec; privateworlds and obsessions confront public interests; Greece and the Far East a re labels on the baggage of the perennial traveller; and the ultimate distance is the mystery ofthe craft of poetry itself, patiently and humbly submitted to over a wide range of subjects, forms, and musical patterns." - fromthe rear cover.
