About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for POEMS by Melville Herman.

Description:

Rare First Edition. Limited to 750 numbered copies only. Large 8vo, publishers original blue cloth lettered in gilt and stamped in blind, t.e.g. xii, 434 pp. A superior copy of this very scarce book, fine and bright and unusually well preserved, without wear or blemish. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE POEMS. The first publication of Melville’s collected poems and the first time that many appear in print. Appearing for the first time "Author’s note (on the use of expletives)" pg. 129, "Miscellaneous Poems" pp. 297-349, and "At the Hostelry" pp. 351-434. Between 1875 and 1920 Melville had fallen deep into obscurity. William P. Trent's A HISTORY OF AMERICAN LITERATURE, 1903, gives Melville but three pages out of 593, and Wendell and Greenough's A HISTORY OF LITERATURE IN AMERICA, 1904, gives him nothing at all. The author's star began to rise in 1921 with the publication of Weaver's biography. The first volume of the collected works was published the following year and did much to expand American awareness of Melville's art. It stands alone as a truly important edition with the inclusion of 'The Poems' and 'Billy Budd,' both of which were here published separately for the first time. ‘The Poems’ appears as Volume XVI of the Standard Edition set.
