The Poet's Corner. With an Introduction by John Rothenstein.
London and New York: The King Penguin Books, 1943. London and New York: The King Penguin Books,, 1943. Ezra Pound's copy Small octavo. Original illustrated boards, titles in red to front and black to spine and rear. Black and white frontispiece and vignettes, and full page colour illustrations. Small chip from boards in middle of spine, and smaller wear to ends and corners, still sound, and internally clean, good condition. First edition thus, Ezra Pound's copy with his pencil ownership initials to front pastedown, and a clipped and tipped in book review with a portrait of Baudelaire dated in Pound's hand, "Times April 1946", in red crayon. Pound's ownership of Beerbohm's superbly mocking caricatures of the great poets of the past is a delightful association, and the two in fact coincided and met as residents in Rapallo, Italy. Pound featured Beerbohm in his own satire of the poetic scene, Hugh Selwyn Mauberley (1920), as the Jewish artist "Brennbaum". The Baudelaire clipping is secured to a stub at the front endpapers utilising (curiously) a piece of stiff card stationery with the Royal Air Force insignia.
