Notes

First edition, Ezra Pound's copy, of this scurrilous Christmas poem printed by Nancy Cunard, this copy numbered and designated in Aldington's hand "This is Number 4, Printed for Ezra Pound, Richard Aldington". This is a superb Modernist association, inscribed by Aldington for the man who coined the term "Imagist" to describe his and his wife Hilda Doolitle's ("H.D.") poetry. "H.D." had also been Pound's first love.

The title page has the later blind stamp of Brunnenburg castle to the title page. Pound stayed at Brunnenburg, the home of his daughter Mary de Rachewiltz, following his release from incarceration in St Elizabeth's hospital in 1958, and wrote the last of his Cantos there.
