Price: $1,000.00

Softcover. First edition. 12mo. 92pp. Paper wrappers. Fair only with chipped front wrapper that has been professionally restored, extensive chipping at the spine, and first six pages also chipped. The first issue of Pound's short-lived literary magazine that includes "Part of Canto XX," a poem from Ernest Hemingway, and contributions from Richard Aldington, Guy Hickok, and John Rodker. Interestingly, Hemingway's name is mistakenly listed as "E.W. Hemingway" on the cover when his middle name was Miller and his one-line poem, "Neo-Thomist" is also misspelled and hand corrected by Pound in each of the 500 copies that were printed. Laid in is a postcard advertising the magazine and a small slip from New York newspaper man, John M. Price. He not only inspired Pound to start the magazine, but was in charge of distributing the first issue in States and seeking out contributions for future issues.
