About This Item

Paris: Contact Editions, Three Mountains Press, 1926. An exceptional copy in original, unopened condition. 8vo. 98, [1] pages. Original French-folded printed wrappers, entirely uncut and unopened. FIRST EDITION, one of 200 copies (of which 10 were on Vergé d'Arches), printed by Dijon printer Maurice Darantiere who issued books for McAlmon's own Contact Editions and its stable of authors (Hemingway, Pound, H.D., W.C. Williams, Stein, and many other key modernists). He is perhaps best known for the herculean task of printing the original Shakespeare & Co. edition of Joyce's 'Ulysses.' McAlmon was at the very center of the Modernist movement through his publishing venture, and his books - including this collection of poems - are cornerstone works in their own right.
