VOX DUCUM 1951
Montreal: Westmount High School,, 1951 [Cohen, Leonard]. VOX DUCUM 1951. Montreal: Westmount High School, 1951. Small 4to., decorated wrappers, 106 pp. Cohen's Graduating Class Annual. In fine condition. A fascinating publication with several photos & biographical entries showing early indications of Cohen's "Sense of Self"; a heightened personal awareness that would ultimately lead to the publication of his first book during his McGill days in 1956, "Let Us Compare Mythologies". Entries & Photos include: Page 20: Biographies, Staff: Len Cohen. Page 23: Graduating photo of the young poet with his personal bio copy including: PASTIME, "Leading sing-songs at intermission" & AMBITION, "World Famous Orator" [very intuitive & prescient].  At Westmount High, Cohen was President of The Student's Council & a Science Graduate. The Council photo is on page37. School Theatrical Production entries are on page 40 & show "Len" Cohen in the cast "Comes The Revolution" - as Julius Caesar in "Death of Julius Caesar" & as the producer for "God Save The King". Page 41 shows the photo of the Glee Club with a caption on page 42. Page 47 shows Cohen as Chairman of the Students Production Committee for "You Can't Take It With You". Page 49 lists Len Cohen as Ticket Sales Manager for the play. Page 54 shows a photo of Leonard Cohen. Likely the first time Cohen appears in print in any form, Less than 200 copies originally printed. Save for a very few, all were likely discarded over time. Very uncommon $3500   . 1st Edition.
