The Harp Weaver, and Other Poems

Hard Cover. New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1923. First Edition. Very Good.


First edition, first printing, with publisher's code K-X to copyright page and spine without publisher's name (later printings included the publisher's name to the spine foot, while it was omitted in the first printing). Publisher's black cloth lettered in gilt, lacking dust jacket as usual. A very good copy with some rubbing and wear to extremities, spine gilt worn, hinge cracked but holding at p. 23, otherwise a clean and tight interior with minimal toning. Yost 19. The Harp-Weaver and Other Poems is a collection of sixty-eight of Millay's poems, many of which were previously unpublished in book form. Specifically, this volume includes "My Heart, Being Hungry," "The Ballad of the Harp-Weaver," "Memory of Cape Cod," and "A Visit to the Asylum," in addition to nearly forty untitled sonnets. Notably, the "The Ballad of the Harp-Weaver," first published in 1922, won Millay the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1923.
