About this Item: New York, New Directions., 1926. First American Edition. 23 cm. 231 pages. Illustrations, including frontispiece and 4 pages of plates, in black and white. Original hardcover. Very good condition with only very minor signs of external wear. From the reference library of Hans Christian Andersen - Translator Erik Haugaard. With his Exlibris to the pastedown. [A New Directions Book]. If the invention of literary modernism is usually attributed to Joyce, Eliot and Pound, it was Pound's personality and position in the artistic world that enabled the experiment to transform itself into an international movement. In 1926 Pound brought together the body of his shorter poems into a definitive collection which would illustrate the hallmarks of the new style. This collection, where Pound presented himself in a variety of characters or 'masks', was called Personae. In 1926, Personae's publication gave solidity to a movement; today the work stands as one of the classic texts of the twentieth century. (Amazon). Seller Inventory # 44616AB

About this Item: Elkin Matthews, London, 1915. Paperback. Condition: Good. First edition. 12mo. 64pp. advert page. Third issue, the only one with the Vorticist cover by Dorothy Shakespear. Corinal card covers, rubbed and spotted, Paper spine heavily worn with surface loss. Dorothy Shakespear (14 September 1886 8 December 1973) was an English artist. She was the daughter of novelist Olivia Shakespear and the wife of American poet Ezra Pound. One of a small number of women vorticist painters, she had art work published in the short-lived but influential literary magazine BLAST.Dorothy and Pound first met in 1909 in London, and after a long courtship the two married in 1914. They lived in Paris from 1920 until 1924, and in 1925 settled in Rapallo, Italy. In spite of her husband's 50-year affair with Olga Rudge, whom he met in Paris in the early 1920s, Dorothy stayed married to Pound. In 1926 she gave birth to a son Omar Pound, who was raised in England by her mother. By the 1930s she received a number of family bequests, making her financially independent, but lost much of her money by following Pound's advice to invest in Benito Mussolini's Fascist regime.Toward the end of World War II, Dorothy and Pound were evacuated from their home in Rapallo, and for a period she lived with Pound in Rudge's home. After the war, when Pound had been arrested for treason and incarcerated on grounds of insanity in Washington, D.C., she moved there, visiting daily, taking control of his estate, and staying with him until his release. They returned to Italy in 1958; in 1961 she moved to London, leaving her husband to live out the last decade of his life with Olga Rudge. Seller Inventory # 024842

About this Item: Stephen Swift & Co, London, 1912. 8vo, original gray cloth. Covers lightly soiled, spine darkened, some offsetting as usual to endpapers, otherwise a very good copy. Covers lightly soiled, spine darkened, some offsetting as usual to endpapers, otherwise a very good copy First edition, first issue. Presentation copy, inscribed "To Allen Upward, from E. P. Sept. 1913". The publisher's ads at the end are present in this copy; these ads "have been cut out in some presentation copies, distributed after the failure of the publisher." Perhaps as many as 1000 sets of sheets of the original edition were used in the first American edition of 1913, in the combined edition of Canzoni and Ripostes which Elkin Mathews published in 1913, and in the later separate issue of the sheets by Elkin Mathews in 1915. Swift went "bust" soon after Ripostes was published in October 1912. Gallup A8a. Allen Upward (1863-1926), an English barrister, writer, and scholar, contributed to the New Age and New Freewoman, and wrote plays, novels and poems. Upward's two significant and original contributions to thinking about the origins and developments of religions and cultures are The New Word (1907) and The Divine Mystery (1913). Pound's latest biographer A. David Moody sees Upward as "a thinker rather than an artist, but nonetheless a combatant in the revolt of intelligence 'against the crushing dominion of the stupid classes'. Pound associated him with 'the forces of intelligence', both for his original perceptions of the slow advance of those forces in modern as much as primal societies, and because he saw his work as itself a force for liberation from ingrained superstitions and ignorance. He particularly noticed in The Divine Mystery (1913) Upward's connecting individual genius or intelligence with sensitivity to the vital universe, and his looking for a civilization founded upon that order of intelligence. There he would have been finding confirmation of his own thinking. But Upward started [Pound] off in a new direction by putting him on to the Chinese classics. He had him reading Confucius and Mencius in French in October 1913, and he would have shown him his own selection of The Sayings of Confucius (1904)." - A. David Moody, Ezra Pound: Poet. I: The Young Genius 1885-1920 (N. Y.: Oxford University Press, 2007), p.238. Pound recorded Upward's suicide in the first of the Pisan Cantos (LXXIV) and remembered him in Canto CX. Dedicated to William Carlos Williams, Ripostes contains "Portrait D'Une Femme", "The Seafarer", and "The Return", one of Pound's most famous Imagist poems. Seller Inventory # 16359
