Robert Frost - A Boy's Will, first U.S. edition, second state, in dust jacket
A Boy's Will Robert Frost New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1915 First U.S. edition, second state, in dust jacket Condition: Near Fine Jacket Condition: Very Good This is a jacketed, American first edition, first printing of the author's first published book.

Condition is near fine in a very good dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is square, tight, and beautifully clean, with deep color, and vivid gilt. Trivial shelf wear appears confined to the bottom edges. The contents are clean with no spotting. Age-toning is mild and the sole previous ownership mark is a neatly inked name on the front free endpaper. Second state of the first printing is confirmed by absence of the misspelling in the last line on page 14. The early state jacket features "75 Cents Net" on the spine and front face. Loss is minor, confined to the spine ends, flap fold corners, a small spot on the lower left rear face, and a short closed tear at the upper front hinge. The jacket is clean apart from a few small stains to the blank rear face and the numbers "4" and "6" inked below and to the left of the title on the upper front face. The spine is scuffed but most of the print remains legible. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, clear, archival cover.
