COLLECTED POEMS OF ROBERT FROST with AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT POEM SIGNED

New York: Henry Holt and Company, (1930). First Edition. Hardcover. First Trade Edition. Crane A14.1: one of 3870 copies printed from the plates of the Random House limited edition. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize. Laid in on an unruled index card is a fair copy AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT of a poem, "A Time To Talk," completely in Frost's hand and SIGNED by him at the conclusion with the dedication "For (looks like George but we don't think so) Bush." A comparison to the poem, first printed in MOUNTAIN INTERVAL and here printed on page 156 reveals that Frost has added a line in the copy he has made. After "Blade-end up and five feet tall," Frost has added "Like a sunflower stalk," which is not included in the printed poem. A fine and scarce example of an altered holograph poem by Frost. Fine, lacking the uncommon dustwrapper. Item #010927
