About this Item

COATES, Walter John. LAND OF ALLEN AND OTHER VERSE. [North Montpelier, Vermont]/Athol, published by W. Paul Cook, The Recluse Press, 1928. Small quarto, maroon-cloth with paper title labels on the front cover & spine (as issued). Apparently also issued in a plain tissue or glassine dust jacket- not present here. First Edition. A collection of poetry by Coates, who was editor of "Driftwind" magazine from 1926 to 1950. Driftwind published poems and essays, mostly by local authors, and also published works by H.P. Lovecraft and August Derleth- with Coates even appointing Lovecraft as (honorary) associate editor of the magazine from 1935 to 1937. Lovecraft's obituary by Coates was published in the magazine's April, 1937 issue. Signed presentation from Coates on a front blank page: "To Jack Greenberg, Nov. 9, 1932 By The Author. In recognition of your sonnet `Recapitulation'- one of the four best in November issue (1932) of Driftwind." Greenberg obviously was published in Driftwood. A nice association copy in which Coates actually mentions the magazine by name. With Greenberg's small, but terrific personal bookplate on the front pastedown, depicting two nude women, with one seated on a rock and reading a book. Very Good (contents clean & tight; little tanning & very shallow chipping to spine label). $100.00. Bookseller Inventory # 1738
