The Owl: A Miscellany (October, 1919)
Martin Secker 1919 - Bibliography. 56 pp. 9.75 x 12.25. B&W illustrations, colored renderings. Only three issues were published between 1919 and 1923. Editor-poet Robert Graves (he contributed as well) attracted talents such as Max Beerbohm, Walter de la Mare, Rockwell Kent, Vachel Lindsay and John Nash, to name but a few. Short stories, poems, artful drawings are all included in this rare "back issue." Covers are smoky purple with the owl in black-and-white front-and-center over the list of the contributors. Spine covering is almost completely peeled off with all edges rather banged up, bumped corners, slight warp to front cover. Pencilled marks inside front cover. Back few pages slightly indented towards top. Back cover reads "Athenian fowl with feathered legs / Stand emblem of our will / To hunt the rat that sucks the eggs / Of virtue, joy, and skill." [Attributes: Hard Cover]
