New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1973. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by author to half-title: "More food for David's hungry class, with a mixture of everything. Alice Walker. 1-'73". Publisher's blue cloth stamped in black to spine; original dust jacket designed by Robin Forbes with black and white image of flowers to upper cover, lettered in purple. Book with very light rubbing to bottom corners, else fine; in a fine dust jacket with just a touch of toning to top edge. A lovely copy, with an intimate inscription from the author. Revolutionary Petunias is Alice Walker's third book and her second book of poetry, a follow up to her critically acclaimed Once. The poems are, as the dust jacket proclaims, "…about Revolutionaries and Lovers… about (and for) those few embattled souls who remain painfully committed to beauty and to love even when facing the firing squad."
