Lawrence Ferlinghetti has influenced American culture like few other poets. But in 1955, shortly before he would gain fame as the beloved author of "A Coney Island of the Mind," he was an unpublished and mostly unknown poet. He launched City Lights Publishers that year with a five-hundred-copy letterpress edition of "Pictures of the Gone World," Number One in the Pocket Poets Series. A classic collection of early work, "Pictures" includes many of Ferlinghetti's most iconic poems. This limited edition sixtieth anniversary hardcover restores the book to its original selection, and is a must for collectors and fans.

Lawrence Ferlinghetti is a poet, painter, and founder of City Lights Booksellers & Publishers.
