"The Spice-Box of Earth is Canadian poet and songwriter Leonard Cohen's second collection of poetry. It was first published in 1961 by McClelland and Stewart. The book brought the then 27 year-old poet a measure of early literary acclaim. Many poems have been anthologized in Canadian school textbooks.

Following The Spice-Box of Earth, Cohen retreated for several years to the treeless Argolic island of Hydra in Greece, where he began work on the far more angular and abrasive poems collected in Flowers for Hitler in 1964."
