Montale, Eugenio (Translated by G. Singh). THE BUTTERFLY OF DINARD. Lexington, KY: University Press Of Kentucky, 1971. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 186 pages. Fine/Fine.

Collection of poems. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in an extremely small and limited print run as a hardcover original by a University Press. Graceful and felicitous translations by G. Singh. Montale's delicate and subtle work has been translated into English by some of the finest writers in the English language. Singh's work is worthy to stand alongside them. A "must-have" title for Eugenio Montale collectors. This title has been out-of-print for a very long time and is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First English-language Edition still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1975. The greatest Italian poet of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EUGENIO MONTALE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0900626046. $30.00
