The Golden Mean and Other Poems.

by Tate, Allen and Ridley Wills

Condition: See description

NP [Nashville, TN] 1923., 1923. 1-200 copies numbered and SIGNED by Wills and Tate, this being No. 115. 8vo. 32 pp. Original stiff tan stapled wrappers with black letterpress title embossed on front cover. This book, now of noted rarity, was self-published by the authors in Nashville. It is Allen Tate's first book. Both authors were active members of the Southern or Fugitive Agrarians and contributed to I'll Take My Stand: The South and the Agrarian Tradition. The Golden Mean was written as a parody of T. S. Eliot's The Wasteland. The cover of the book has some toning around the extremities, a very small 1/2" tear top of spinal fold and very light edge wear. Contents bright. Overall a very good plus to near fine example of a fragile production. Seldom coming on the market, this is a rare book.. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Soft cover. Near Fine.
