Stephen Bann’s handsome international anthology on concrete poetry.

Lightly cocked spine with some of the common bowing to boards and laminate lifting along extremities, bumps to corners, small stains to five pages toward the rear, and a small area of diagonal paper loss from the binding process at lower right corner affecting six pages toward the rear. Very good. Glassine dust jacket present, but in two pieces lacking the spine, with age toning, several closed tears, and paper loss along extremities. Thus poor. Item #1099
