THE MEDITERRANEAN AND OTHER POEMS

New York: The Alcestis Press, 1936. first edition. Octavo, 57 pages, this being number 25 of 165 copies, signed by Tate on the colophon. In addition, this copy is inscribed to poet/writer Mark (Van Doren) on the blank leaf preceding the title page: "To Mark (with the usual misgivings) from Allen July 1, 1936". Allen Tate and Mark Van Doren corresponded for many years; collections of their letters are at Vanderbilt and Columbia. There is a narrow inner margin stain from the glue used in binding, otherwise this is a very good copy in green wrappers, with the spine and some page edges somewhat darkened. The broken remains of the original slipcase, worn and faded, are included. This was Tate's second book. Item #6902

Price: $750.00
