Milan: John Scheiwiller, 1932. First Edition.

An enormously important poetry anthology, one of only 250 copies, this is #44.  Anthology features many of the key Modernist writers of the period, including James Joyce, William Carlos Williams, W.B. Yeats, Marianne Moore, T.S. Eliot, e.e. cummings, and many others, including Pound himself.  Pound has also contributed an introduction and occasional commentary. 142 pages, in original green wrappers folded over stiff white blanks. A very good copy; spine toned and a little chipped at the ends, light toning to edges, two corners a bit rubbed, clearly a read copy with some weakness.

OCLC lists only 6 copies, all in U.S. libraries. Gallup B28. A rare book that does not often come on the market.
