A scarce and very dark poem for children by Bishop. Atmosperic and very appropriate woodcuts by Grifalconi. The ballad of the escape, hunt for, and eventual gunning down of a robber and murderer in the slums of Rio de Janeiro. Residue remains from label removal on FFEP, otherwise fine in white linen boards. Unclipped jacket a little edgeworn with small tears at the folds.
