Paris 1930 - ONE OF 100 COPIES (this unnumbered) signed by the composer, faint foxing to prelims and poems but notational pages clean, pp. [ii], [6, poems], 20, 4to, original illustrated boards with Man Ray photomontage of Cunard's own collection, lightly toned with gentle rubbing to extremities and two small strips of surface removal to lower board, a small amount of faint foxing to endpapers with small Australian bookseller's stamp at foot of front pastedown, promo info for a modern recording of these songs laid in, good. Formerly the copy of Acton's bibliographer Neil Ritchie, with his sales notes laid in. Poems by Samuel Beckett, Richard Aldington, Nancy Cunard, Harold Acton, Nancy Cunard, and Walter Lowenfels set to music by Crowder, an African-American jazz pianist based in Paris who was Cunard's lover at the time and assisted her at the Press. Beckett's contribution 'From the only Poet to a shining Whore' was written expressly for Crowder and is uncollected elsewhere. A very well preserved copy of what is - like many Hours Press publications - a fragile book. (Ritchie B4; Federman & Fletcher 6)
