New Hampshire.New York: Henry Holt & Company, 1923 Stock Code: 143675
First edition, first impression, signed on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "Robert Frost, Amherst, December 1923". New Hampshire is one of Frost's most notable books, and won him his first Pulitzer Prize. It contains poems such as the famous "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Fire and Ice". There were 5,350 copies (of which 350 were of the signed limited issue) in the first print run, and it is very appealing to have the trade issue of this poetry classic signed only two months after publication, and in Amherst, where he was at the time teaching English, at Amherst College.
Octavo. Original green cloth backed boards, titles gilt to spine, black paper to boards, gilt title label to front, patterned endpapers.
Woodcut illustrations by J. J. Lankes.
Ends and corners rubbed, otherwise a sound fresh copy in excellent condition.
