Item #02063 Harmonium. Wallace STEVENS.


New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1923. Octavo. Pastel-striped paper over blue cloth with paper spine label; 140 pp.; dust jacket. First edition, second state binding limited to 215 copies. This was the smallest print run of the 1500 first edition copies spread across three binding states. With the exceedingly scarce, unsophisticated dust jacket. A Near Fine copy with scant rubbing to board edges and one small stain to top of spine label; page edges a trifle browning along the top and small bookseller's ticket to rear endpaper, else Fine internally. The unclipped ($2.00) dust jacket is Very Good with some surface soiling and a small chunk missing to crown (not affecting title); 1" hairline crack along joint fold. We find zero copies of either the first or state binding with the dust jacket currently in the trade (June, 2015). Item #02063
