Publisher Location: New York
Publisher: Random House
Year Published: 1938
Book Condition: Near fine
Edition: First edition
Brown cloth in dust jacket; small 8vo. 56 pp. An unusually attractive copy of the third collection and third book by an author better known now for his mysteries especially THE BIG CLOCK. Praised by M. L. Rosenthal as "the chief poet of the American Depression", and by Thomas Disch among others, he was a unique voice, sadly under appreciated today (as are most of the social realists of his day - there time will come again). The endpapers inevitably browned, but less than usual, the dust jacket spine-darkened, otherwise near fine. An exceptional copy. (Now protected by a removable archival Jacket.)
