Alturas de Macchu Picchu / The Heights of Macchu Picchu.
Iowa City, IA: Seamark Press, 1971. Quarto. (42)pp. One of an unspecified number of copies, though cataloging of other copies state an edition of fifty. Translated and printed by Howard Zimmon in red, ochre, and black. An exacting work of printing, especially so with Neruda's Spanish and Zimmon's English appearing on facing pages, arriving at an important time on two fronts: Neruda received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971, and in 1970 the edition's dedicatee, Mary Vecchio, was photographed in the immediate aftermath of the Kent State Shootings kneeling over the body of Jeffrey Miller. Bound in green paper over boards with paper spine label. Nudges to corners, label faintly toned, else fine. From the library of Kim Merker. Item #32230
