THE FALL OF AMERICA: POEMS OF THESE STATES, 1965-1971 (The Pocket Poets Series No. 30)
San Fransisco: City Lights Books, 1972 . Soft Cover. Near Fine binding. Item #6559
12mo. , 188,  pp. First edition, third printing, signed by Ginsberg on the title page. As issued, in black wrappers with text in white and $3.00 price on the rear cover. A remarkably fresh copy with little shelfwear and a spine that is just a trifle darkened. While there is no indication of edition in the text, Cook in his bibliography of the City Light Pocket Poets identifies this as the third printing issued in 1974 (Cook 30). A very nice, early printing of Ginsberg's National Book Award-winning collection of poetry.
