1 Yeats, William Butler A Packet for Ezra Pound
Dublin The Cuala Press 1929 Limited. Hardcover Very Good No Jacket 
Dublin: The Cuala Press, 1929. Yeats and Pound, although separated by differences in their age, temperament, and career status, had lived together in England. A story in the NY Times (1988) reported "The situation at Stone Cottage is unmatched in literary history: two of the greatest poets of the 20th century - and two poets so different in temperament - living in excruciatingly close quarters for months at a time." Pound would describe the scene in his Cantos: "I recalled the noise in the chimney as it were the wind in the chimney but was in reality Uncle William downstairs composing . . . at Stone Cottage in Sussex by the waste moor." This is a Very Good copy of the First Edition, which was printed by Elizabeth Yeats at her Cuala Press (successor to Dun Emer) in an edition LIMITED to 425 copies. Blue-gray paper-covered binding; linen spine with a paper-label. Clean text; 38 pages. Has the mis-printed Roman date on the Title Page. There is a faint previous-owner signature and notation on the FFEP; faint glass-stain on the front cover. No dustwrapper, as issued (per Ahearn); in an archival plastic protector. . Size: 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall. Limited.. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket.

Clean text; 236 pages. Mildly bumped; spine a bit faded but completely readable.Previous-owner name on the Title Page. Without a few spots on the front panel and spine, the book would be graded much higher; as it is, they detract little from this scarce volume.
