§ First edition, with a long inscription at the front in an unknown hand. "Cawdor and Other Poems, it might safely be said, was for Jeffers a return to planet earth. After a flight of hubris the year before with The Women at Point Sur, he was perhaps humbled and ready to apply his remarkable talents toward narrative. The title piece Cawdor, though less ambitious than The Women at Point Sur, was a more mature work." The Inhumanist. Broomfield A9b. Item #124785
