Jevons Block: A Book of Sex Enmity

Boston: McGrath-Sherrill Press, 1917.

Price: $200.00

Hardcover. First edition. Small private library stamp on the front pastedown, slight age-toning to the spine and a faint dampstain to the bottom of the rear board, still an attractive, very good plus copy, almost certainly issued without dustwrapper. Poet's first book, a sort of *Spoon River Anthology* about the merchants and residents of one block in Boston, including the failed poet-turned bookseller Arthrite Bacon. Little known now, Buss was celebrated for her wit in the 1920s. A very scarce title.
