[American literature]. Schwartz, Delmore.
Vaudeville for a Princess and other Poems.
Octavo, pp. 106. Schwartz's poems and short articles, written between 1943 and 1950. His fourth publication. Laid in: 8 x 11 photogravure of "An informal Literary Gathering at The Gotham Book Mart," (1948), with all the literary giants of the day, including Schwartz, looking a little out of place next to Marianne Moore!
A brilliant but unstable artist, this is his first publication since 1943. Compilation of some wonderful essays (his 3 pager on automobiles is a real period piece) and his poetry. Uncommon title, as are most of Schwartz's first editions.
