Personae: The Collected Poems of Ezra Pound
First edition, second printing, signed and inscribed by Pound on the front free endpaper – "Love for Pamela, E.P., 1929." Above, Pound signed his initials, "E.P.," and wrote "dark" (both struck through), along with a date, "10/27." New York: Boni & Liveright, 1927. Very good condition, with scuffing and rubbing to boards and edgewear. Internally clean with scattered foxing to endpapers. Protected in a removable archival sleeve. Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from PSA/DNA. Pound's definitive collection of his shorter poems in which he presented himself as a variety of characters or "masks." The publication of this volume gave solidity to the modernist movement and is now considered one of the classic texts of the twentieth century.
