Poetry: A Magazine of Verse, Volume 21, October 1922 - March 1923 [Ernest Hemingway Early Poetry], Hemingway, Ernest
125 Hemingway, Ernest Poetry: A Magazine of Verse, Volume 21, October 1922 - March 1923 [Ernest Hemingway Early Poetry]
Chicago Poetry Magazine 1923 Hardcover Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
Chicago: Poetry, A Magazine of Verse. Published October 1922-March 1923. Volume 21, issues #1-6. Olive green cloth binding hardcover, measures 7-1/4" x 5-1/2". 348 pp. with 22 pages of ads bound in rear. Front and back covers (wrappers) of bound magazines are removed, but March 1923 bound in back of book. Overall 6-month contents page included. Contains six very early Hemingway poems, found within the collection titled "Wanderings" - "Mitrailliatrice", "Oily Weather", "Roosevelt", "Riparto D'Assalto", "Champs d'Honneur", and "Chapter Heading" (Hanneman #C 121). This is an extremely early (and rare) magazine appearance by Hemingway. These six poems make up six of the ten poems featured in his first published work, THREE STORIES & TEN POEMS. This collection of poems was published six months BEFORE the first and only limited edition publishing of TSTP in Paris by Contact Publishing - 300 copies of TSTP was published in July, 1923. A biographical note, on page 231 of Poetry Magazine, states "Ernest M. Hemingway, a young Chicago poet now abroad, who will soon issue his first book of verse." The acknowledgment found on p. [xi] of TSTP states: "Five of these poems were first printed in Poetry A Magazine of Verse." This is incorrect. Six of the poems were printed. In this offered bound magazine, "Mitraigiatrice" (July printing of TSTP) was spelled "Mitrailliatrice" (January printing, Poetry Magazine). This particular copy is an interesting ex-library copy, from the University of Chicago - just under 18 miles from Hem's boyhood home in Oak Park, IL, or 10 miles from where he lived just after marrying Hadley (1st wife). Hem moved away just 13 months before this volume was published and resided in the Univ of Chicago library. Cloth binding in good condition with minimum wear visible. Ex-library copy from University of Chicago, with typical library label, withdrawn stamps, removed rear card sleeve and info on title and copyright pages. Spine darkened with age but still readable; extreme cover margins, fore and bottom page block edges, and extreme page margins are also darkened. Removed labels to outer lower spine, and rear panel - both removed but have 'shadow' outlines. Slight rubbing to corners and head & tail of spine. Pages are unmarked and clean. Pages 221-233 are loose from text block, but attached. Page 231 detached and laid in.

Other highlights of this issue include a George Petty Old Gold Cigarette 'Petty Pinup illustration', as well as an important collection of photos (including 'Migrant Mother' Florence Owens Thompson) documenting the tough economic times (dust bowl era) by Dorthea Lange, an important photojournalist.
