Salas, Rafael M. . FIFTY-SIX STONES. New York City, NY: Weatherhill, 1985. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 86 pages. As New/As New.

The author's debut collection of haiku poems. The first and only edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only, it is now rare. The late Filipino Undersecretary of the United Nations was a world expert on population and development, having written six books on the subject. He was also a close associate of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos, with whom he had an early "falling-out", resulting in his involuntary exile from the Philippines for the rest of his life. A brilliant collection. A "must-have" title for Rafael Salas collectors. This title has been out-of-print for a very long time and is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the true First Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce copy thus. One of the most accomplished Filipino poets of the 20th century. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RAFAEL SALAS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0834802066. $20.00
