Item #16327 WHAT ARE YEARS. Marianne Moore.


New York: Macmillan, 1941. First Edition. Hardcover. Blue cloth in dust jacket; 8vo. 54 pp., including notes. Somewhat uncommon (published during the war years, paper being scarce): 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. Abbott A6. A very good copy, blue topstain, very lightly faded, the preliminary pages unevenly toned as usual; in a fragile near very good dust jacket with some loss especially to the bottom of the spine. Front flap deeply clipped as are all copies we have seen, but with the price remaining ($1.50). (in removable archival protective covers). Very good / very good -. Item #16327

Price: $75.00
