Notes

First trade edition, first impression. Presentation copy of Weber's first published literary work, lengthily inscribed by Weber to Joseph Blumenthal on the front free endpaper, thanking him "with deep appreciation of his devotion and love he embodied in Primitives". Weber's book of woodcuts and poems, Primitives, was produced by Blumenthal (1897-1990) in collaboration with George Hoffman at the Marchbank Press, and was their first project at the Press. Weber inscribed this book on the day the final page of Primitives was printed (20 October 1923), "in the hope that it will be an cumulative means to himself and others for the creation of rarest beauty and innovation in the art of printing". Blumenthal fulfilled this hope, going on to found the Spiral Press, where he designed and printed work for prominent clients such as the poet Robert Frost. Max Weber (1881-1961) is the Jewish-American artist generally credited with introducing European avant-garde movements, including primitivism and cubism, to the American art scene. Cubist Poems collects 38 poems written while he lectured in art history at the Clarence H. White School for Photography, and is introduced by the photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn (1882-1966), to whom the book is also dedicated.
