Hard Cover. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1928. First Edition. Very Good.
First edition, first printing, with publisher's code I-C. Publisher's three-quarter black cloth and blue paper-covered boards with white paper spine label lettered in black. A very good copy with some wear to extremities and spine label, affecting text, else clean with a bright interior. Yost 36. Published five years after she won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, The Buck in the Snow is a collection of Millay's verse that includes "The Bobolink," "Northern April," "Being Young and Green," "Wine From These Grapes," "Evening on Lesbos," "Dirge without Music," and "On First Having Heard the Skylark," among others. Although she had already established her reputation as a master poet, Millay continued to impress with the poems in this collection. Indeed, Percy Hutchinson avers in his 1934 New York Times review, "Never has she done poetic work more uniformly beautiful."
