Two poems by Robinson Jeffers printed by Ward Ritchie with permission of the poet, but there were several typos in the text, and Ritchie destroyed most of the edition. Between 12 and 15 copies of the first edition in the original wrappers are recorded. See Bloomfield. A few copies in sheets surfaced years later that were found among Ritchie's papers, and this is an example of one. This copy was sold at Pacific Book Auction on April 15, 2010, lot 209: hammer with buyer's premium, $900.00.
