Poems 3. Alan DUGAN.

Poems 3

New Haven: Yale University Press, 1967. First Edition. Small octavo (21cm). Green cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; dustjacket; 61pp. Inscribed on leaf facing copyright page, below dedication: "For Ben & Bernarda / Love, Dugan," undated but apparently contemporary. Mild surface rubbing to dustwrapper, else a fine, fresh copy.

Dugan's scarce third book. Dugan dedicated all of his published books to his wife Judy, oldest daughter of Ben Shahn with his first wife, Tillie. It was Dugan's practice, as in the present example, to inscribe books to his in-laws directly beneath the dedication, suggesting a strong bond between them.
