    New York: Limited Editions Club, 1940. Hardcover. Some small holes to the endpapers only, likely due to insect damage at some point; the second volume with an old dampstain to the top edge, barely discernable on the spine and affecting only the very top margin of about half of the pages.

    COLLECTED POEMS OF ROBERT FROST with AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT POEM SIGNED by FROST, Robert

    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.

    TALES OF THE SOUTH PACIFIC by MICHENER, James

    New York: The Macmillan Company, 1947. First Edition. Hardcover. The brittleness of the cheap paper, found in every copy we have seen, is much in evidence with a very short tear at the top margin running through nearly every page of the book. The covers also have short tears near the spine at the top and bottom. The upper front corner is bumped, and a darker shade at the very head of the spine indicates that a dustwrapper was present on this book for quite some time. All that is left is the rear flap which is laid in. Good copy only, but a great, early inscription and housed in a Fine box. Michener's first book and winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This copy with a very early INSCRIPTION dated 27 May 1947 SIGNED by the author: "Dear Jim,/The first serious writing I/did came your way. This one/had a better fortune, thanks to the/passing of time and some millions of/acres of the Pacific. It's been a treat knowing you./Jim Michener." We can only speculate who Jim was, but obviously he was of some importance to Michener very early in his career. Housed in a handsome and recent navy blue half morocco clamshell box.

    OUR TOWN with an AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) by WILDER, Thornton

    New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., (1938). First Edition. Hardcover. Some sunning to covers. About Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper. The letter has a crease from folding, otherwise Fine, with envelope. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the half-title page: "For Roger Seccombe/with the best wishes of/Thornton Wilder/New Haven/November/1938." Laid in is a 2-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) "Thornton Wilder" written on the recto and verso of a single sheet of personal stationery addressed to Seccombe and inserted in a handwritten, postmarked envelope addressed by Wilder to Roger Seccombe dated 25 October 1941 tipped in at the front endpaper. In full: "Many thanks for your letter. It is a great pleasure to hear from any relative or friend of my friend whom I admire so much. I wish I were in Chicago and could have some talks with your son. However, I rejoined the faculty this past summer alone, after four years' absence, and do not foresee when I shall return there again. This is a double disappointment, because I should also like to ask him many questions about Antioch -- a place which all teachers watch with such interest. I have just returned from England where I spent the month of September and I am very eager -- if all my accumulated work will only permit -- to go up to Peterboro and tell Mary of all the absorbing and sad and finally magnificent things I saw there. Tell your son that I hope to see him some day and never to hesitate to call on me, if he hears that I am in the vicinity. Sincerely yours, Thornton Wilder." In September of 1941, Wilder went to England to attend a congress of the International PEN (Poets, Essayists, and Novelists) Club. The main theme of the congress was "Literature and the World after the War," but the heart of the issue was the responsibility of the writer in time of war. Wilder was part of a vocal group that opposed the president of British PEN, Storm Jameson, who insisted that members commit themselves exclusively to propaganda for the Allied cause. (Stein, Gertrude; Wilder; Thornton; Burns, Edward McNall; Dydo, Ulla E.; Rice, William. THE LETTERS OF GERTRUDE STEIN AND THORNTON WILDER. New Haven: Yale University Press, 2006; page 297). When not caught up in navigating the politics of PEN, Wilder wrote to American educational philosopher Robert Maynard Hutchins that his days in London, "were crowded with inspections of ruins, defense activities, airplane factories, bomber commands, luncheons, interviews with works, journalists. Ministers, dinners, writers, and so on" (Wilder, Thornton; Wilder, Robin G.; Bryer, Jackson R. THE SELECTED LETTERS OF THORNTON WILDER. New York: Harper Perennial, 2009; page 400). It is perhaps to this variety of experiences while in London which Wilder refers in this letter when he says, "I have just returned from England where I spent the month of September and I am very eager -- if all my accumulated work will only permit -- to go up to Peterboro and tell Mary of all the absorbing and sad and finally magnificent things I saw there.
