About this Item

A quite rare book which includes a bibliography by Knopf himself of all Knopf books (Borzoi Books) published from September 25, 1915 to September 25, 1920. Knopf worked earlier for Doubleday before he began his own firm. With original contributions by Willa Cather "On Writing Fiction", H. L. Mencken on Cather, Arthur Waley, Van Vechten et. al.; poetry by Eliot, Aiken (the first book appearance of "How He Died"), Pound and Bridges. An attractive copy with illustrated paper over boards, topstain, wear on the edges and gutter along spine, edges a bit worn. Mencken was among the first to publish Cather and to beat the drum for her. A rare and valuable memoir by several of the authors published by Borzoi in those five years. An attractive and unusual copy. Very Good Plus in a glassine wrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 140929
