Patchen, Kenneth. An Astonished Eye Looks Out of the Air. Waldport, Oregon: Untide Press, 1945. Unpaginated. 8vo. Second impression. The first impression was mainly lost due to printer's error and only 30 or so copies survived. This impression was limited to 1950 copies. Staplebound. Very good. Wear along the spine and edges. A touch of yellowing. Bookplate belonging to Canadian poet and professor Ronald Bates.

This striking production was set in Futura type with tint-block printing, leading to a rather dynamic design result by Kemper Nomland Jr. This volume of verse was apparently printed at a camp of conscientious objectors belonging to the San Francisco Renaissance.
