CIOPW: ART by EE CUMMINGS (1931 hardcover) /295 LIMITED 1st EDITION - EEC FWD
New York: Covici, Friede, 1931. Pagetops dirty, other edges age-yellowed; top & bottom board edges worn; spine age-darkened & small piece missing at top some text faded. Outside then about VG, but binding tight, with no marks or damage within. Published by Covici, Friede (New York 1931). First (only) edition, with a foreword by the author. Hardcover, bound in rough-woven tan burlap. Of 391 numbered copies signed by the author, this copy is signed (like all copies of this title, signed across the title page in green watercolor) but unnumbered. Printed in NYC by the Stratford Press. Typography by S.A. Jacobs. Reproductions by the Meriden Gravure Company. Slight age darkening to page edges and spine, and - as with many copies of this large but fragile book, all the more so more than 80 years after publication - the dry cloth is split for 3/4 in. at the top and 1/4 in. at the bottom of the front gutter (but with no loss of material); else very fine. The title is an acronym for Charcoal, Ink, Oil Colors, Pencil, Watercolor, each of which has a section in the book. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
