First of this softbound edition (first thus). On the title page, the poet inscribes and signs it in black ink to Iowa poet Bill Pauly (1942-2021): "For Bill / Gary Snyder / 25.iv.95 Des Moines." "Riprap" was Snyder's first book (published 1959), not published together with "Cold Mountain Poems" until later.
