Cawdor and Other Poems.

1928. New York: Horace Liveright, 1928.

8vo, 160 pp. Quarter orange buckram, brown buckram boards, slipcase; backstrip slightly darkened, ink inscription at front, a very good copy.

§ Edition limited to 375 numbered and signed copies of which 350 are for sale, this is copy number 90. This is the first appearance of the poem "Cawdor": "The events of the principal poem in this book... may be thought of as being already ancient history on this future-ridden coast; they end under the comet of 1910. I think of 'Cawdor' as making a third with 'Tamar' and 'The Woman at Point Sur'; but as if in 'Tamar' human affairs had been seen looking westward, against the ocean; in 'Point Sur' looking upward, minimized to ridicule against the stars; in 'Cawdor' looking eastward, against the earth, reclaiming a little dignity from that association."
