Comments

A fine copy of the first issue of Frost's poem "The Gold Hesperidee" which first appeared in 1921 in the magazine Farm and Fireside, but was never collected in Frost's published books. Apparently there were 500 copies of the first issue, but the printer was unhappy with aspects of the typography and withdrew it from distribution. He then printed a second issue, which corrected the errors. From the inventory of Burton Weiss, Bookseller.

Price: $500.00
