New York: Howell Soskin Publishers, 1944. First Edition. Tan cloth hardcloth, in dust jacket. Measures 5-3/8" x 7-3/4" tall. 330 pp. Full contents section in front, and biographical notes and portrait pictures of authors in back of book. A collection of the New Poems of 1944, with poems of American and British verse, and by the men in the Armed Forces of England and America. A very interesting take on the typical 'Poetry Anthology' book, as Williams identifies with poets in the Armed Forces such as 'Sergeant Karl Shapiro', among others. Partial listing of poets included: Conrad Aiken, W.H. Auden, John Berryman, John Peale Bishop, E. E. Cummings, Robert Frost, Robinson Jeffers, Archibald MacLeish, Marianne Moore, Wallace Stevens, Dylan Thomas, including other 'Armed Forces' listings of poets. Overall, very good condition, with flaws noted: Board corners bumped. Dust jacket edges chipped and worn. Head and tail of dj spine chipped. Previous owner has taped DJ to covers with three spots per cover - I have not attempted to remove the tape. From what I can tell, cloth covers appear fine. Interior contents tight. Previous owner's name written on ffep. No interior writing present. Some pencil erasure marks on rear endpaper. Not ex-library.
