Harmonium.New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1923 Stock Code: 122345
NotesFirst edition, first impression, with an exceptional example of the very scarce dust jacket, one of 715 copies in the third issue binding from an edition of 1,500 copies. The same jacket was used for all three issues. Harmonium was the poet's first collection, and includes some of his most famous poems such as "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird", "The Emperor of Ice-Cream", "The Snow Man", and "Sunday Morning".
Octavo. Original blue cloth, printed paper label to spine. With the dust jacket.
Slight tanning and rubbing only to the spine ends, otherwise a fine copy, with the dust jacket faintly faded to spine panel and bearing a few small chips along the top edge, and some small closed splits to centre of the rear joint, but notably bright and entirely unrestored.
