About This Item

[New York]: Limited Editions Club, (1998). Hardcover. Fine in slipcase, as issued. Edward Ranney. Oblong folio (15" x 12") bound in full dark green linen with a black leather spine label lettered in gilt. Translated by John Felstiner and illustrated with photogravures by Edward Ranney. This poem is the result of a visit by the Chilean winner of the Nobel Prize to the mysterious citadel in Peru built by the Incas. "The superb photographs of Macchu Picchu by Ranney that accompany Pablo Neruda's Heights of Macchu Picchu stand among the finest works of a photographer whom one critic calls 'a very modern visionary of the antique,' embodying 'a gnomic monumentality, an almost clinical sublimity.'" Copy #154 of 300 numbered copies SIGNED by the translator and by the illustrator. Monthly Letter laid in.
