The Exile. [Complete in 4 Vols.] - Pound (Ezra, Editor) - 1927. [1279496]
Paris Vol. 1 Chicago: Pascal Covici Vols 2&3 and New York: Covici Friede Spring & Autumn -1928 1927 - FIRST EDITIONS, pages of first volume a little toned, single-word pencil annotation beside Pound's name on p. 93 of second volume, pp. 92; [iv], 121, [2]; [iv], 109, [2]; [iv], 117, foolscap 8vo, original orange or red wrappers printed in black, backstrip of first volume a little darkened as are the untrimmed and largely unopened edges, water-speckling to front of final volume, Vol. 3 with two puncture marks at head of front, one of which extends to first handful of pages though not affecting text, and a small tear to bottom corner, good condition overall. As Tryphonopoulos and Adams note in their 'Ezra Pound Enclyclopedia', Pound used 'The Exile' for the express purpose of printing 'a range of work from friends and acquaintances'; amongst this roll-call are John Rodker, Richard Aldington, Ernest Hemingway (mis-initialled as 'E.W.' on the front of No. 1), Carl Rakosi, Bob McAlmon, W.B. Yeats, Louis Zukofsky, William Carlos Williams, and John Allen Cournos - with a liberal sprinkling of Pound himself. Parts of Cantos XX and XXIII make their first appearances here, with the majority of his contributions taking the form of editorial comment. Hemingway's contribution, curt as it is, has had its title hand-corrected (from 'Nothoemist Poem' to 'Neothomist Poem') by Pound in pencil, as in each of the 500 copies of this first number.
