Item #12140 WHAT ARE YEARS. Marianne Moore.


New York: Macmillan, 1941. First Edition. Hardcover. Blue cloth in dust jacket; 8vo. 54 pp., including notes. Somewhat uncommon: the bibliographer reports 1251 sold, and the book went out-of-print within the year. Nevertheless among the poems are favorites like "He 'Digesteth Harde Yron'", "The Pangolin" and the title poem. A much nicer than usual copy: sunned at extremities, end papers lightly toed as usual, with a note in pencil of four poems not in "Collected"; in a front flap clipped (front flap, top and bottom, as are all copies we have seen) dust jacket, with the price ($1.50) still present, worn with small loss at corners, but still close to very good (in removable archival protective covers). Abbott A6. Very good / very good -. Item #12140

Price: $75.00
