Used Book Treasures

One of my favorite poets is Ruth Stone. I have all her recent books, and just added her first two  poetry books to my collection - now that I have them I am reading Topography, her second poetry collection. It is a delight to read all the poems in it. I can see that she masterfully started as a poet and compare how she changed and grew in her newer volumes. The copy I bought is also a bit of a treasure. It's a first edition hardbound with the original owner's name neatly added in the front. It also has the original receipt from Harvard's book store. It is a great way to finish my Ruth Stone collection.
