About this Item

Tall, slim 8vo: [8],27,[3]pp. One of 150 unnumbered copies printed in red and black in Hammer New Uncial type on handmade Hosho paper. Publisher's mustard boards with printed paper spine label, limitation slip laid; scarce original matching mustard dust jacket printed in black. A pristine copy, the jacket spine panel barely rubbed to the top edge. Provenance: pictorial book plate of bibliophile Arthur A. Goldsmith, Jr., to the front paste down. Sixteen previously unpublished poems (save one). "One may question with suspicion an edition of the early unpublished poems of a well-known author and look upon them as one might the voyeur seeking forbidden fruits of curiosity, finding only weak work. Yet beyond generalization, a particular author's early works show forth his beginnings, the seeds of what is to come." (from the Foreword) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB1047
