Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.

Book Condition: Near fine
Edition: First Edition
Cloth in dust jacket; 8vo. 241 pp. w/ index. The first major work on Frost's poetry. Thompson would go on to write a three volume biography of Frost; he was chosen by Frost for the job. The first volume was nominated for an NBA, the second volume won a Pulitzer Prize, the final volume was completed after LT's death by his assistant. Unfortunately for Frost biographical history, Thompson's own personal problems increasingly rather darkened his take on Frost. Still after Thompson scholars no longer saw Frost as a simple farmer/poet. This first major work is uncommon, and rare in this near fine condition the jacket with only minor edge wear.
