STOCKHAUSEN COLLECTION, 1974, "this copy is most certainly from the library of Henry James the novelist. The owner name is in the hand of his nephew Henry James but appears to be an identification of source. The nephew inherited a large part of the novelist's library on the author's death in 1916.… Read more

London: David Nutt, 1913. Hardcover. Hardcover. 1st edition, full bronze pebbled cloth, without dust jacket (as issued). Specially signed by Frost on the half-title page in fountain pen ink.

The book is attractively housed in a specially designed archival box, featuring French goat spine, Roma paper boards, mahogany frame, and genuine gold titling. Truly a cornerstone for any Frost collection.

Description:
1946. Octavo. (8)ff. A manuscript poetry chapbook handmade by Robert Frost and inscribed by the poet with the dedication, "A Preview / for Nita and Doc / from / R. F. / After a good Bread Loaf / 1946." "Doc" refers to Frost's friend Reginald Cook, a Middlebury professor who was the director of the Bread Loaf School of English for many years. Frost met Cook in the mid-1920s, and they remained friends until the poet's death in 1963. Cook kept written records of his conversations with Frost and transcribed his lectures, and he later published the book Dimensions of Robert Frost in 1958. This collection of poems was presented to Cook and his wife after his first session as director in 1946. The eight verses copied in Frost's hand are "To an Ancient," "Something to Hope For" (published as "Something for Hope"), "One Step Backward Taken," "Why Wait for Science," "But He Meant It" (re-titled "The Broken Drought"), "The Courage to Be New," "A Mood Apart," and "Bravado." These were a preview of some of… Read more

London: David Nutt, (1914). First Edition. cloth. Near Fine, lacking the scarce dustwrapper. Crane A3: Binding A, one of 350 copies in this first binding of a total of 1000 printed of Frost's second book. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the poet at a very early date on the front endpaper "Sidney Cox/from/Robert Frost/Ryton Dymock/England/October 1914." The lifelong friendship between Frost and Cox began while Frost was teaching at the New Hampshire State Normal School in the academic year 1911 - 1912, before the publication of Frost's first book. Cox described their friendship in his own book, A SWINGER OF BIRCHES: A PORTRAIT OF ROBERT FROST. Frost's several months living in the old parish of Dymock was shared in part with the poet Edward Thomas whom Frost considered the closest friend he ever had. Thomas compared Frost to Wordsworth in one of his several favorable reviews of NORTH OF BOSTON. England's entry into the First World War hastened Frost's return to America early in 1915 with Thomas volunteering… Read more

Description:
1952. Holograph manuscript on two leaves of white wove, three-holed, loose-leaf paper measuring 9 1/2 by 6 inches. At the bottom of the second leaf, in Frost's hand, the work is inscribed "Robert to Fred" (i.e. Frederick B. Adams, Jr.). A life-long bibliophile, Adams was the director of the Pierpont Morgan Library from 1938-1969. This poem first appeared as Frost's Christmas greeting for 1952 and was not actually released until July 4, 1953; it was later published in Frost's last collection, In the Clearing. Adams's label on the front cover of his archival folder dates this manuscript to November 1952, and there are sufficient variant readings to suggest that Frost was still revising the poem when he presented these leaves to Adams. Of particular note is line 3, which reads: "That was to make the New World newly great"; in the published version, this was changed to "That should have made the New World newly great", removing at once the undertone of potentiality in Frost's stanza about the original… Read more

New York: Halcyon House, (1939). First Edition. Hardcover. Fine, lacking the dustwrapper. First Printing of the Halcyon House edition, a near exact reproduction of the Holt edition published a month earlier but without the introduction. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author "For Cornelius Weygandt" on the front endpaper with the final eight lines of the final poem in the book under the chapter AFTERTHOUGHT "A Missive Missal" in FROST'S HOLOGRAPH, here titled "From Twenty-five Thousand Years Ago--: "Far as we aim our signs to reach/Far as we often make them reach/There is an aeon limit set/Beyond which they are doomed to miss./Two souls may be to [sic] widely met./That sad-with-distance river beach/With mortal longing may beseech;/It cannot speak as far as this." Frost has omitted what would have been the third line of this section, "Across the soul-from-soul abyss." Weygandt, an English scholar at the University of Pennsylvania, first met Frost in 1915. He is described by Frost anonymously in his poem… Read more

New York: Henry Holt and Company, (1930). First Edition. Hardcover. Fine, lacking the uncommon dustwrapper. First Trade Edition. Crane A14.1: one of 3870 copies printed from the plates of the Random House limited edition. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize. Laid in on an unruled index card is a fair copy AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT of a poem, "A Time To Talk," completely in Frost's hand and SIGNED by him at the conclusion with the dedication "For (looks like George but we don't think so) Bush." A comparison to the poem, first printed in MOUNTAIN INTERVAL and here printed on page 156 reveals that Frost has added a line in the copy he has made. After "Blade-end up and five feet tall," Frost has added "Like a sunflower stalk," which is not included in the printed poem. A fine and scarce example of an altered holograph poem by Frost.

This copy has been SIGNED by the author and INSCRIBED "For Daniel Smythe/Boston December 1940" with the complete eight-line poem "The Pasture," the first poem in the book, entirely in the poet's hand on the front endpaper. Interestingly Frost appears to have made a mistake at the beginning of the penultimate line and, though neatly done, it is clear that he erased a word or two and wrote over it. "The Pasture" is one of Frost's best known poems and not commonly encountered, complete, in manuscript form.

Description:
New York: Modern Library, (1946). Hardcover. Very Good in a Very Good dustwrapper. Reprint of this popular collection which features Frost's essay on poetry, "The Constant Symbol," as an introduction. This copy has been SIGNED by the author and INSCRIBED to minor poet and folklorist Addison Barker with the complete eight-line poem "The Pasture," the first poem in the book, in the poet's hand on the page opposite the title page. The recipient's signature is on the front endpaper above a pasted newspaper photograph of Frost, and Barker has noted on the title page the date Frost wrote the poem in the book: 25 January 1950. Barker has an interesting connection to Frost in that in 1951 he published the discovery of the very first appearance in print (BLUM'S FARMER'S AND PLANTER'S ALMANAC FOR 1850) of the proverb "Good fences make good neighbors." Barker tried to find an earlier, New England appearance before publication in the North Carolina almanac but was unsuccessful. There were previous variants on… Read more
