The City Day: An Anthology of Recent American Poetry

New York: The Ronald Press Company, (1929).

Price: $350.00

Hardcover. First edition. Modest wear to the edges of the boards, and the spine slightly darkened, a very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. Important anthology featuring most of the more avant-garde American poets. Signed by the editor with her address on the front fly, quite possibly an ownership signature. The text contains several small notes, underlinings, and check marks, which appear to be in Walton's own hand. Walton was a New Mexico-born Ph.D. who taught anthropology at NYU, and who was the "older woman" and muse of novelist Henry Roth when he began his great novel *Call It Sleep*.
