Salas, Rafael M. . FOOTPRINTS. New York City, NY: Weatherhill, 1986. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 127 pages. Fine/Fine.

The author's second collection of haiku poems. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Rafael Salas' "Footprints". An evocative collection. 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. His literary output is significant because it shows yet another side of his multifaceted talents and career. An absolute "must-have" title for Rafael Salas collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. One of the most accomplished Filipino poets of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER RAFAEL SALAS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0834802163. $20.00
