Notes

A striking example of Cummings's poetic artwork, unusually signed and located by him on the front, and notable for its dreamlike delineation and almost Fauvist colouring. The rustic tower depicted may be one of Brittany's many windmills.
Cummings's daughter gave the entire contents of her father's art studio to Luethi-Peterson Camps (founded 1948) for them to sell as fundraisers. The sale was handled by Gotham Book Mart and this example derives from that same collection.
