Murray, UT: Pharos, 1945. First edition of the author's first book. An early version of ORPHEUS DESCENDING published as a double issue of Pharos Magazine: Numbers 1 & 2, Spring 1945 (comprising the whole issue). Fragile paper covers intact but yapped (over-hanging) edges of the covers understandably show some wear. Light staining or sunning on spine and edges. Internally fine with pages bright so still good to very good condition in light gray paperwraps printed in red on covers and with the spine blank.
