POEMS 1947 - 1954

San Francisco: Adrian Wilson, 1954. First Edition. Hardcover. Cloth-backed decorative boards with paper spine label with uncommon original printed wrap-around band.

The frontispiece, a piece of ORIGINAL ARTWORK by Kees, is here not bound in, but merely laid in; unusually, it is SIGNED “Weldon Kees 1954.” With the scarce prospectus for the book laid in. Fine in a Fine glassine dustwrapper with printed wrap-around band. Item #021270
