Henry Holt, New York 1945 - Cloth. A few spots of dulling to cloth, a couple bumps to edges, else a good copy in worn and chipped dust jacket. First trade edition. Presentation copy to Wilbert Snow, inscribed on the date of publication by the author on the front free endsheet: "To Bill from one of the oldest friends of him and all his works Robert Wesleyan March 26 1949." With pencil markings (presumably in Snow's hand) in the margins and traces of erased pencil annotations throughout the text. Charles Wilbert Snow (1884-1977), a poet of the Maine seacoast (especially near Spruce Head, Maine) and a professor of English at Wesleyan University (from 1921-1952), often arranged visits of varying lengths for Frost at Wesleyan. "During those visits the two poets became affectionate friends, although the Socialist liberalism of Snow's political views and activities offended RF's conservatism." (SELECTED LETTERS OF ROBERT FROST, ed. by Lawrance Thompson, N.Y., 1964, p. 393). CRANE 27.1.
