The Lion's Tail and Eyes; Poems written out of laziness and silence

Madison, Minnesota: The Sixties Press, 1962. First edition. 8vo, 45pp; blue cloth. Just about fine in a rubbed dust jacket with a one-inch scratch to the rear panel. Item #204850

Uncommon clothbound issue of the early collection that appeared at about the same time as Bly's first solo collection, Silence in the Snowy Fields. This copy nicely inscribed and signed by Bly on the front flyleaf: "For David and Judy with love from the lion's nostril hair, Robert." The recipients were likely the poet David Ray, who co-edited an anthology of Vietnam War poetry with Bly, and his wife.
