Et j'ai voulu la paix.London : 1916 Stock Code: 35923
NotesFirst edition, sole printing. A book of war poetry of pacifist tendency by a minor but fascinating member of the modernist set.

In his editorial capacity at The Egoist, Pound would have been instrumental in its publication.
Octavo. Single quire wire stitched, self wrappers printed in black.
Staple rusty, wrappers soiled and a little creased. With the publisher's emendation to his address printed inside the rear wrapper.
