73 Poems by E.E. Cummings


Hardcover with dust jacket in very good condition. Custom restored ex-library copy.

Dust jacket is in good shape with some visible wear; a few small sealed edge tears; and corner crease to rear; catalog sticker on spine. Now housed in a new HD brodart jacket protector.

Book itself is very good. Some wear to cloth on spine. Near immaculate boards with just a tiny spot on rear. Pages are clean, white and read almost good as new! Small spot of discoloration on front endpape. Overall, a very nice, clean and crisp copy that does not show its age.
