(Torino): Giulio Einaudi Editori, (1954). First edition. Only 3000 copies printed. English and Italian texts on opposing pages. This poetry collection includes the first appearance of "The River of Rivers in Connecticut" and 17 pages of previously unpublished notes on his poetry. Stevens was a reluctant commentator on his own work, and these notes are believed to be the only comments he ever made in print on his poetry. [Edelstein A21.] Short, inconspicuous tear to fore edge front cover, otherwise bright and nearly fine in paperwraps. Lacking the plain glassine dust jacket. ENGLISH & ITALIAN TEXTS.
