Nine Experiments [SIGNED]

Cincinnati, OH: Elliston Poetry Foundation University of Cincinnati, [1964 Copyright]. First Thus. Hardcover. An about Very Good copy of the first facsimile edition of Stephen H. Spender's first book, showing only mild wear and tide markings to the boards -- otherwise about Fine. [Only about thirty [30] copies of the first edition were printed, and those by Spender himself.] The facsimile shows a presentation of the original copy presentation by Spender to "Winifred" on the second front free endpaper as well as the book's limitation notice with a note in Spender's hand stating that the copy reproduced here was number 1 of the group of "about thirty" of the first edition copies. [Please Note: the foregoing are facsimiles of Spender's handwriting.] Copies of this facsimile edition are uncommon to the market, and the great and distinguishing feature of this copy is the ORIGINAL SIGNED PRESENTATION OF THIS COPY BY STEPHEN SPENDER TO WILLIAM S. GRAY in blue ink found on this volume's title page. While the book does have tide marks to the cover, it likely is the ONLY EXAMPLE OF STEPHEN SPENDER'S FIRST BOOK SIGNED BY SPENDER that is, or perhaps ever will be, available to collectors. The book is housed in its near fine original slipcase which shows only mild wear, the only example of the slipcase that we ever have seen. A decent example of this volume, with a PRESENTATION TO WILLIAM S. GRAY. A SCARCE TO RARE INSCRIBED AND SIGNED COPY. Very good. Item #3425

Price: $525.00
