2 Housman, A. E. More Poems
This slender volume contains the final selection of A. E. Housmann's poems published by his permission, not by his wish. His instructions, allowing them to appear, while committing other material to a less fortunate fate, were "I direct my brother, Laurence Housmann, to destroy all my prose manuscripts in whatever language, and I permit him but do not enjoin him to select from my verse manuscript writing, and to publish, any poems which appear to him to be completed and. . . Not inferior to the average of my published poems. . . . ". All poems but for one had not be previously published by 1936. The last poem in the collection, For My Funeral, was the last of the dated poems found. The table of contents identifies each of the poems by the first line; very few have titles. Included is a photocopy of one of his poems, some alternative readings, and dated poems. Printed on heavy stock, the subjects lean toward nature, life, love, and death. Included is a frontispiece drawn by Francis Todd. The deep blue cloth binding has gold decoration and lettering on the front and spine. Has a small silver sticker on the inside back board from Traver's Book Store, Trenton, NJ.; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

Tell Me, Tell Me Granite, Steel, and Other Topics; New Poems and Prose, Moore, Marianne
4 Moore, Marianne Tell Me, Tell Me Granite, Steel, and Other Topics; New Poems and Prose
Whether writing of the "Granite and Steel" of the Brooklyn Bridge, or of "metaphysical new mown hay" in her famous apostrophe (in the title poem) to Beatrix Potter's Tailor of Gloucester, Marianne Moore is always, inimitably, the poet of particulars. The range of her curiosity and imaginative attention extends, in this new collection of verse interspersed with prose, from baseball players to ballet dancers, from a polo pony named Blue Bug to a talented crow called Pluto, to Yul Brynner in a camp for refugees, and from downright precepts for moral behavior to eloquent reflections on the poet's craft. Eighteen poems and four prose pieces are included and all but six appear here for the first time. 57 pages including notes. The binding is beautiful paper with 1/4 cloth spine. The jacket has light edge wear at the top. 6" x 9 1/2" tall

Sweet Dreams, Prince, Pamela
5 Prince, Pamela Sweet Dreams
0517556723 / 9780517556726; The soft, children's Art of Bessie Pease Gutmann is used in this book to complement the wonderful child poetry written here. Her art has been used for a long time, and I remember seeing some of it in books I had as a child. Those were the ones I kept as they were comforting and I liked the words with them. The poetry by Pamela Prince is perfect to read to children. The jacket is a pinkish color but sun lightened at the top and spine, and it has a few wrinkles at the top. The book itself is perfect. ; 4to - over 9 3/4" to 12" tall; 48 pages
