Beschreibung:

This is a beautifully fine first edition of the author’s second published book, which bolstered his newly minted literary reputation and precipitated his return to the United States from England, where his first two books were published. North of Boston opens with the famous poems "The Pasture" and "Mending Wall" and was swiftly hailed by important reviews when published in April 1914. Complicating the publication history, the reported 1,000 first edition sheets saw six different binding variants distributed over a period of eight years, due both to transfer of sheets for an American edition and to bankruptcy of the original publisher (Nutt) and resulting sale of remaining first edition sheets. (See Crane, A3, pp.14-15) In 1922, Dunster House Bookshop of Cambridge, Massachusetts, acquired the remaining 259 sets of first edition sheets, 200 of them unbound and 59 already bound in blue cloth by Simpkin Marshall of London. These 59 copies were rebound by Dunster House in green (Binding E, per Crane). This copy is a scarce and superlative example of Binding E, stamped gilt on the front cover as in Binding A, but with a blind rule at the top and bottom only, with trimmed text block edges, and with "Printed in Great Britain" ink-stamped on the title page verso. The green cloth binding remains square, tight, and improbably bright and clean. We note only the most trivial hint of shelf wear to the bottom edge, but no soiling, spine ends wrinkling, or bumped corners. A better eye *might* discern the faintest color shift between the spine and covers, but we do not. The contents are mildly age-toned, but show no spotting or previous ownership marks and the page edges are clean apart from minor top edge dust soiling. The book retains a crisp, stiff feel, as if unread. Iconic American poet and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963), the quintessential poetic voice of New England, was actually born in San Francisco and first published in England. When Frost was eleven, his newly widowed mother moved east to Salem, New Hampshire, to resume a teaching career. There Frost swiftly found his poetic voice, infused by New England scenes and sensibilities. Promising as both a student and writer, Frost nonetheless dropped out of both Dartmouth and Harvard, supporting himself and a young family by teaching and farming. Ironically, it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children – "the place to be poor and to write poems" – that finally catalyzed his recognition as a noteworthy American poet. The manuscript of A Boy’s Will was completed in England and accepted for publication by David Nutt on 1 April 1913. "Yeats pronounced the poetry "the best written in America for some time" and Frost received "two extraordinary tributes in the Nation and the Chicago Dial and a superb review in the Academy." (ANB) A convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the English publication of Frost’s second book, North of Boston, in 1914, after which "Frost’s reputation as a leading poet had been firmly established in England, and Henry Holt of New York had agreed to publish his books in America." Accolades met his return to America at the end of 1914 and by 1917 a move to Amherst "launched him on the twofold career he would lead for the rest of his life: teaching whatever "subjects" he pleased at a congenial college… and "barding around," his term for "saying" poems in a conversational performance." (ANB) By 1924 he had won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943). Frost spent the final decade and a half of his life as "the most highly esteemed American poet of the twentieth century" with a host of academic and civic honors to his credit. Two years before his death he became the first poet to read in the program of a U.S. Presidential inauguration (Kennedy, January 1961). Bibliographic reference: Crane A3. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
