Poontang and Other Poems

(Crescent City, FL: Privately Printed / New Atheneum Press, 1967).


Softcover. First edition. Stapled wrappers. Very slight bump to the bottom corner, still easily fine. Signed by the author. Reportedly one of 500 copies, this is the seemingly scarcer variant in gray wrappers (also issued in green, no priority). A self-published volume of poetry, perhaps the scarcest book published under Willeford's name, and rare signed. Be forewarned: when the name of your business is Between the Covers and someone calls to order *Poontang*, hilarity is likely to ensue.
