Eimi was a travelogue, in Cummings's signature abstract prose, of his visit to the Soviet Union in 1931. As explained on the limitation page, the unusual limitation was apparently simply a reflection of the number of orders received by 15 February 1933.
Large octavo. Original yellow cloth, spine and front cover lettered in black, fore and bottom edge uncut.
Spine ends and tips a little bumped and worn, 3 short closed tears to head of spine, boards a little soiled with two marks to rear board, a few light pencil annotations to contents. A very good copy, square and firm.
