HEADLANDS: Foreword and Selections from Robinson Jeffers by David R. Brower; Photographs by Richard Kauffman ... of Big Sur, Point Lobos, Carmel Valley.
San Francisco: Friends of the Earth, (1976). First edition. Number 91 of a stated 800 numbered copies of which 750 were offered for sale [Broomfield A70]. SIGNED BY BROWER & KAUFFMAN. Illustrated with 34 color plates, 3 of which are tipped in (2 at front, one at back), and 5 of which span 2 pages. Most of the photographs first appeared in PRIMAL ALLIANCE (Friends of the Earth, 1971) but are here printed from new, enlarged plates and coupled, for the first time, with selections from Jeffers’ verse. Folio gilt-stamped beige cloth boards with photographic inset on front cover; 76 pages plus afterword. Fine with prospectus/separate color print (“Ice Plant, Point Lobos”) laid in. Housed in publisher’s very good gilt-stamped, blue-gray, paper-covered slipcase which is still quite solid but showing some fading, scuffs and light wear. OCLC records less than 40 copies in libraries and with the relatively few copies offered for sale online, we wonder if there were actually ever 800 copies printed.
