Poems. Madeline Gleason.


San Francisco: Grabhorn Press, 1944. First edition. 8vo, 59 pp, bound in red boards backed with linen cloth with printed title label to spine; unprinted paper dust jacket. One of 250 copies printed.

The first book by this seminal figure in the San Francisco Renaissance, who inaugurated the First Festival of Modern Poetry in 1947 at Lucien Labaudt Gallery - perhaps the first established poetry reading series in the US. Near fine, with a very slight bend to boards and a couple faint spots of soiling to front panel; the original unprinted dust jacket, while faded and a bit chipped at margins, remains largely vivid and better than usually found. Item #21965
