New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1923 (1926). Hardcover. Still Near Fine, lacking the dustwrapper but in a Fine box. Cloth-backed boards. INSCRIBED For Sue Grundy Bonner and SIGNED by the poet on the front free endpaper beneath the complete sonnet, "Once by the Pacific," entirely in the author's hand and here titled "Fiat Nox," the chapter heading under which this poem is the first printed from the book WEST-RUNNING BROOK. This poem, one of the few Frost wrote about the state of his birth, California, was begun by Frost in college but not finished until 46 years later. The first four of the fourteen lines set the stage: "The shattered water made a misty din Great waves looked over others coming in And thought of doing something to the shore That water never did to land before." Very mild sunning to the spine with light fraying to the spine tips. Neat tissue repair to the front hinge. Housed in a handsome gilt-lettered brown morocco-backed marbled paper clamshell box.
      [Bookseller: Charles Agvent]
