Summary
  • "Lawrence Ferlinghetti has influenced American culture like few other poets. But in 1955, shortly before he would gain fame as the beloved author of A Coney Island of the Mind, he was an unpublished and mostly unknown poet. He launched City Lights Publishers that year with a five-hundred-copy letterpress edition of Pictures of the Gone World, Number One in the Pocket Poets Series. A classic collection of early work, Pictures includes many of Ferlinghetti's most iconic poems. This limited edition sixtieth anniversary hardcover restores the book to its original selection, and is a must for collectors and fans. Lawrence Ferlinghetti is a poet, painter, and founder of City Lights Booksellers & Publishers"--
  • "Published to celebrate sixty years of City Lights publishing, which was begun with the letterpress printing of this book in 1955. A classic collection, this was the only volume of his own poetry Ferlinghetti would publish at City Lights, and it includes many of his most beloved poems, published in a limited edition hardcover, a must for collectors and fans"--
