From Snow to Snow --The Keepsake Issue (With the Hampshire Bookshop Tribute, Including a Full-Page Inscription from Robert Frost to the Shop's Owner) AND a Handsome Signed Copy in Dustjacket of the 2nd Printing
New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1936. Cloth. Near Fine/Near Fine. 2 mixed states of this 1936 Robert Frost collection --one representing a remarkable piece of Americana (and Frostiana), the other a handsome, SIGNED copy in dustjacket of the 2nd printing. The Keepsake issue, limited to 300 copies, includes the folded, pasted-on sheet celebrating the 20th anniversary week (1916-1936) of the Hampshire Bookshop of Northampton, MA. ROBERT FROST, the guest of honor on the evening of April 16, 1936, WRITES on the 2nd blank sheet AN EXTRAORDINARY, FULL-PAGE TRIBUTE TO A MISS DODD (PRESUMABLY THE BOOKSHOP'S OWNER), PAYING TRIBUTE TO HER SHOP, HER IDEALS AND THE LARGER AMBITIONS AND ROLE OF A BOOKSHOP IN A SMALL TOWN. The fragile "keepsake" edition is clean and VG+ to Near Fine in its mottled beige wrappers, with just a touch of very light creasing at the front panel and along the upper edges. Octavo, 20 pgs., in addition to the Hampshire Bookshop commemoration. Coupled with a crisp, very sharp copy of the 2nd printing. SIGNED BY ROBERT FROST at the top of the front free endpaper, this copy is clean and tight in its green cloth (with bright, unflecked silver titling to the front panel) in a crisp, Near Fine dustjacket. Thin 12mo, also 20 pgs. Together, these 2 copies --both bought from the same collection-- represent a a pair of lovely Frost collectibles.
