About this Item

No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 123 pp, Introduction by Louis Untermeyer, The Wild Party. This large paper edition, designed by Lewis F. White, is limited to 1499 numbered copies for the United States and the same number for the British Empire. Ten unnumbered copies have been struck off for reviewers. This is one of the Ten Unnumbered Copies: Limited Edition, 1947. "The Wild Party is a book-length Jazz Age narrative poem, written by Joseph Moncure March. The poem was widely banned upon its 1928 publication, first in Boston, for having risqué content: The violent story of a vaudeville dancer who throws a booze and sex-filled party. The poem was a success despite, and perhaps in part, due to the controversy. It tells the story of show people Queenie and her lover Burrs, who live in a decadent style that March depicts as unique to Hollywood, and who decide to have one of their parties, complete with illegal bathtub gin and the couple's colorful, eccentric and egocentric friends, but the party unfolds with more tumultuous goings-on than planned." Age-toned text block edges, else, Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Black textured faux-leather with blind-stamp lettering to front board and spine. Size: 4to. Bookseller Inventory # 002693
