About this Item

Original quarter brown goatskin, fine, boxed as issued. One of 25 special signed copies, which include a postcard from Pound to the author, and a printed slip concerning Laughlin's donation of the post cards to the University of Iowa Foundation. The postcard, dated 6 June 1938, typed on both sides, with Pound's handwritten annotations, signed with initial, shows Pound's concern with the design of "Guide to Kulchur": "In absorbing KULCH/ I trust you will suppress St Simon Stylites wrapper and if possible ascertain WHO committed it. St J/ was served on a platter/ waaal mebbe the to is intended as a platter/ but the violation of ideogramic principles wd/ only confuse our compatriots . also if they are printing you new copies/ get the frontispiece LEVEL. " New Directions took over 520 sets of sheets of the Faber edition and issued them under the title "Culture", changing the wrapper design. Bookseller Inventory # 22739
