This American poet published his first collection ("An Ode to Harvard and Other Poems") in 1907, acting as editor at "McClure's Magazine" briefly and taking part in the famed Spectra literary hoax in 1916; in 1922 he relocated to Santa Fe and became a mainstay of the rich literary scene there, publishing poetry collections until 1960. TNS, 1p, 6" X 7", Santa Fe, NM, 4 September 1941. Addressed to Arnold F. Gates (1914-93, noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar). Near fine. On his personal letterhead, Bynner thanks an admirer for birthday greetings, adding, "Before leaving Mexico we out our house there in fairly good order, so that I hope the next time I am there, instead of being with carpenters, masons and painters, I shall be busy with a manuscript." Boldly signed in black ink. Accompanied by a delightful 7" X 9½" sepia-tone printed photograph, a half-length right-facing portrait in bow tie and hat. (Published in Volume 7, Number 4 of the literary magazine "The Mentor," 1919, with biographical text on verso.) A superb pair. Bookseller Inventory # 41407
