POUND, Ezra
A Draft of XXX Cantos.
Paris: Hours Press, 1930. Paris: Hours Press,, 1930. Octavo. Original tan cloth, titles to spine and front board in red. Some fading from red spine titles, barely any rubbing to the cloth, general light spotting within, a very good copy indeed. Small bookseller's ticket of the Peabody Bookshop, Baltimore, to front pastedown. First edition, first impression, number 87 of 200 copies on Canson-Montgolfier soleil velin paper, from a total edition of 212. This publication marks the first appearance of the poems that would make up Pound's Cantos, his magnum opus. "An epic of great vision and complexity, Pound's Cantos address the profound human issues in history and in our time... A Drafts of XXX Cantos, which introduces the work, anticipates the full Cantos' essential themes and provides the surest entry into Pound's encyclopaedic masterpiece" (A. Walton Litz's Preface to the 1990 New Directions edition of XXX Cantos).
