Association Copy of a Chicano Movement Poetry Classic

Nationchild Plumaroja: 1969–1972

Notes: An important early work by this pioneering Chicano poet who was one of the first to explore the Mayan and Aztec roots of Chicano culture. Fifteen years ago, I offered the opinion that of the early Chicano Movement poetry collections, this was the easiest to find; but no longer. This is the first one I've had in years.

The book is illustrated with interesting line drawings by Victor Orozco Ochoa, Esteban Villa, and Armando Núñez.

Unpaginated but 196 pages (actually, the book is paginated using Mayan glyphs. I had to count the pages since my Mayan is a bit rusty). Small format, 4 by 6-1/2 inches.

Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing, a paperback original). A very good to near fine copy, which once belonged to the author Floyd Salas (Tattoo the Wicked Cross), with his ownership signature and "U.C. Irvine Oct. 1973" on the first page.

Publication: San Diego: Toltecas en Aztlán, 1972.
