Drawings by Howard Cook. Stapled wrappers. Fine condition. This copy comes with Frost's apologia laid in; printed on a small card is this message from the author: "This Christmas poem, though not isolationist, is so dangerously near isolationist, it was thought better to send it out for Independence Day instead of Christmas." Appearing at the bottom of the card in Frost's hand is "R. F. July, 4 '53." [Crane B24] [and:] The Lone Striker. New York: Alfred A. Knopf [1933]. First edition of 2,000 copies (per Crane). Small octavo. Three printed pages. Stitched wrappers. One crease to preliminary blank page; otherwise, this is a fine copy in original envelope. Number 8 of the Borzoi Chap Books.
