Boston & New York: Houghton Mifflin, . First Edition Red cloth-backed gray boards with a printed label on the front cover and on the spine. INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the front endpaper by the poet to writer and critic Waldo Frank and dated June 1921. Laid in is a sheet of paper, slightly larger than the text pages, on which is printed four paragraphs about LEGENDS including three quotes from critics, one of whom is Waldo Frank. This page appears to have been removed from another book, perhaps another title by Lowell. In any case it is a clear indication of the importance of the inscription. Near Fine, lacking the scarce dustwrapper (Item ID: 011807)
