Rare First Edition FIRST PRINTING!

Mountain Interval

By Robert Frost

New York:  Henry Holt and Company



12mo.  99 pages.  Hardcover bound in green cloth.  The binding has a little bumping on the top edge of the front cover, and there is some brief damping at the hinges near the bottom edge.  There are some check marks beside some of the poems in the Table of Contents.  The former owner of this book was an elderly woman who had heard Frost read in person.  Perhaps the check marks are those poems she heard read. FIRST PRINTING with uncorrected mistakes on pages 88 and 93.  Secure inner hinges.  Prior owner's name on front pastedown.  A sound and attractive copy of a rare book.  Not many sellers would post this at $9.99 and with no reserve, so don't let this one slip away!!
