Seller ID: 795
The Roycroft Quarterly, May 1896, No. 1. East Aurora: Roycroft Print Shop. Soft wraps, edges lightly nibbled, spine awkwardly repaired but intact. Crane's contributions include seven short poems (The Chatter of a Death Demon, A Lantern Song, A Slant of Sun on Dull Brown Walls, I Have Heard the Sunset Song of the Birches, What Says the Sea?, To the Maiden the Sea Was Blue Meadow, and Fast Rode the Knight).The two sketches are A Great Mistake and A Prologue. Crane was about twenty-five when this tribute was published, and The Red Badge of Courage had only recently been published (as had The Black Riders and Other Lines, his first book of poems). Ambrose Bierce's tribute (among others-- Howells, Davis, and Carmen): 'Were it not for the miles that separate us, I would be with you and lick a plate so clean it would not have to be washed for a month.' This copy apparently unopened (and unlicked).
