Book Description Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1952. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine-. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine-. First Edition. First Printing, one of only 2000 copies. 8vo: ix,[1],188,[2]. Slate blue V cloth with floral design in blind to upper cover, spine stamped gilt, top edge stained slate blue, fore- and bottom edges rough trimmed, gray dust jacket printed in marron with photograph of Stevens and biographical note on back panel. About Fine (minor shelf-wear), in About Fine price-clipped jacket (lightly sunned spine). Edelstein A4.c. Originally published in two separate volumes, as Ideas of Order (1936) and The Man with the Blue Guitar and Other Poems (1937). "Ideas of Order, a volume in which Stevens bids farewell to the "venereal soil" of the South and attempts, in poems like "Sad Strains of a Gay Waltz" and "Mozart, 1935," to adjust to the bleaker aesthetic and social climate of the 1930s, to 'these sudden mobs of men' and 'streets [?] full of cries'. . . . The relationship between the poet and society is negotiated with greater poise in The Man with the Blue Guitar. . . [its] extended sequence of couplets playing variations on the theme of the relationship between art and things as they are: 'They said, "You have a blue guitar, / You do not play things as they are." / The man replied, "Things as they are / Are changed upon the blue guitar." This theme, Stevens's hallmark "'magination-reality' complex, is pursued almost obsessively in his poetry and prose of the 1940s." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B. 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 # BB1345
