THE HELMSMAN

Author: Cunningham, J. V.
Price: $650.00
Publisher Location: San Francisco
Publisher: The Colt Press
Year Published: 1942
Book Condition: Very Good
Edition: First edition
Stiff paper boards in plain green covers, with blue cover label, printed in black. 8vo. First edition of the poet's first published book, and his first collection of poems (preceded only by a prose rarity that has only appeared for sale in a Peter Howard catalog, and one the bibliographer chose not to include). This copy signed by the poet on the title page. One of 300 copies in various formats including a rare cloth issue, and wraps issues in a floral design and plain green. This one of the scarce issues in heavy inflexible boards. Covers overlap, and thus are turned a bIt, still with little wear and near fine. Rare issue and scarce signed.
