Thinking of a Garden

Kauai: National Tropical Botanical Garden, 2005. First edition. Hardcover. Signed by Merwin and photographer Tina Freeman on the limitation page on the verso of the title page. Scarce. Published by the trustees and friends of the National Tropical Botanical Garden in a limited edition of 100 copies. This is copy 79. Merwin selected the poems for the book, 12 total, and each is accompanied by a black and white photographs taken by Freeman in 2004 at the NTBG and its affiliated gardens. Book and project design by Peter Ruthenberg. Full brown calf, silky to the touch, stamped with a silver title. Lovely photographic endpapers. About 30 pages total . No dust jacket as presumably issued. A stunning production--a nice find for the Merwin collector or the poetical-botanically inclined. A few light scratches to rear board; still fine. Fine.
