Poor Condition. Many pages are detached from the spine. Thin dark blue hardcovers with some wears, discolorations, and rubbings. Title page inscribed and dated by the author Ruth Forbes Sherry, addressed to the late Alfred Dorn (1929 - 2014). This limited copy (out of 500) has two matching signatures of Alfred Dorn. Total 74 pages, no missing pages. Some pencil markings on the pages. Papers were made in India, the book printed and distributed in USA.
Included with this book, is a folded paper hand written by Alfred Dorn. One side contains a partial rough draft, a recommendation perhaps for Ruth Forbes Sherry, the first sentence stating "Ruth Forbes Sherry is a poet of the first rank..."
The other side of this paper contains Ruth Forbes Sherry's address in California, along with several keywords & page numbers supposedly making references to another Sherry's book titled "Imperishable Gene." Mr. Dorn writes "Consult the author about original sources of publications." and then signed. The signature here matches the ones in this blue book.
