WILSON, Edmund
POETS, FAREWELL!
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1929. Wilson's first volume of poetry, here INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "To Marion and John Amen/This little sheaf of woodland/pipings from a wayward muse,/From Edmund Wilson/October 44." The beginning of Wilson's longtime friendship with John Amen, who would eventually become his tax lawyer and executor, dates to 1919. Wilson married his second wife, Margaret Canby, in Washington, DC at the home of Amen, then Assistant Attorney General of the United States. That marriage, of course, would end tragically with Margaret's death two years later after falling down stairs. Amen was the second husband of Marion Cleveland Dell, the daughter of former President Grover Cleveland. A scarce book to find signed, let alone with such a fine association. Very Good in a slightly darkened, Near Fine dustwrapper with minor edgewear [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB [Fleetwood, PA, U.S.A.]
