Rose-colored boards, moderate edge, spine wear, bump. Pages good, clean. Frontispiece sketch of Pound by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska. Bind good. Ezra Pound greatly influenced and encouraged T. S. Eliot's publication of his writings. Pound prompted Eliot to write this pamphlet, though anonymously in order to avoid accusation of mutual promotion and his authorship was not made public until two years after original publication. The title itself was Pound's idea, thematically linking it to another book by the publisher, Ezra Pound's Lustra. Brief tribute to Pound and analysis of his writings issued to promote Knopf's edition of Lustra. Pound revised and corrected it before sending it off to John Quinn, who was arranging publication. Insured post.
