Unicorn.

Leeds: a Tlaloc print-out, May 1966. First edition. Oblong 12mo. Stapled wrps. Seven leaves, roneoed typescript, printed recto only. The author's first book, containing verse originally published in Bristol in the student magazine, Vision. It reconfigures the myth of the lady and the unicorn, a restructuring and rearranging of the folk tale's characters in a way that Carter later explored in her reimagined fairy stories. Her career as a poet was short, concentrated between 1963 and 1966, but more recently her largely forgotten verse has been critically reappraised. Faint horizontal crease and some superficial creasing; minor age-toning; o/w Near Fine. Printed in an edition of 150 copies.
