By E.E. Cummings .
New York: Covici Friede, 1930. Folio (31.5 cm, 12.45"). 63, [1] pp.; illus. First stand-alone printing: An unusual collection of short stories showcasing Cummings's playfully innovative wordcraft — and his determination to resist traditional formatting. These eight prose pieces had been published the year before as part of The New American Caravan; they appear here with the eight illustrations drawn by Cummings himself, although the page labelled "frontispiece" remains defiantly, deliberately blank.    This is => numbered copy 490 of 491 printed, signed by the author at the colophon.         Firmage A9. Publisher's cloth, front cover with silver-stamped rectangle and author's name embossed, spine with author's name embossed; cloth worn and darkened, silver now mostly lost, spine cloth chipped, hinges (inside) cracked but holding. Internally clean. A good, reasonable copy of this signed limited edition, priced to reflect condition.
