New Hampshire

New York: Henry Holt & Co., 1923. First edition. 8vo, x, 113 pp, publisher's original cloth-backed boards with title pastedown to front panel. Lacking the dust jacket. Inscribed by Frost in the year following publication; "For Marguerita Goodwin from her friend Robert Frost" with ownership signature of Marguerita (Parkinson?) above, though the surname is not completely legible. With small bookseller's ticket from The Old Corner Bookshop in Boston to ffep.

First edition of one of Frost's most prominent works, which collected Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening and other well known poems. Though the dedicatee of the inscription appears to have been a friend, we've not been able to determine her identity.

All proceeds from the sale of this volume benefit our local library.

Crane A6.

Cloth darkened at spine, though gilt still entirely legible; cloth covering the spine frayed through at extremities, with some resulting splitting; boards rubbed at extremities, with some minor toning within and a small split beginning at rear hinge. Despite stated faults, a sturdy, about very good example with an intriguing inscription. Item #29562
