The Seeing Glass by Katie Louchheim (1979)

The Seeing Glass
Katie Louchheim
Monomoy Press
Washington, DC

Monomoy Press was a DC - based Press which was distributed by Dryad Press. This copy was inscribed and signed by the poet. Ms. Louchheim led a colorful life, her obit was tucked into the copy of the book I found as well. She lived in Washington and New York throughout her life. She worked at the State Department as well as holding several Democratic party positions, rising to Vice Chairperson of the Democratic Party from 1956-1960.

This handsome collection is one of her volumes of poetry. She was known for her DC salons where art and politics mingled.
