Laid in is a single-page ALS from Donnan Jeffers to Mr. Donahue thanking him for his kind letter following Robinson's death in 1962. Lester Donahue (1892-1964) was a Los Angeles-born concert pianist and a protégé of the actress Madame Helena Modjeska. Also included is an original black & white photograph of Robinson Jeffers at Tor House, SIGNED and dated 1950, by noted photographer, Ira H. Latour (1919 - 2015), who studied with Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and Minor White. 8vo. 175 pp. A near fine copy in publisher's dustjacket. "The Women at Point Sur is Jeffers' longest poem, a magnificent narrative almost as long as a novel, fully as interesting as any novel can be, and infinitely more stirring to mind and senses than any prose."
