TO A YOUNG WRETCH.

(New York: Spiral Press, 1937). First edition. Holiday greeting, this one with the "Elinor & Robert Frost" imprint. Illustrated with woodcuts by J.J. Lankes. Plain white paperwraps in thin, gold dust jacket printed in black. Some edge chipping, still a very good example of this very fragile jacket. In original mailing envelope addressed to Phillips Palmer in Frost's hand. Together with TWO TELEGRAMS TO PHILLIPS PALMER. One dated December 11th and sent to Palmer at his home by Frost's wife, "Mr Frost sick in bed suggest your coming next Monday instead of tomorrow." And the other sent by Frost to Palmer at Middlebury College (where Frost taught at the Bread Loaf School of English for so many years), "Must be misquoted sounds not the least like me in form or content someone must be trying to set me up in a new pretentiousness...." The telegrams, which are housed in a tattered Western Union Telegram envelope, are tanned and just starting to split at folds. INSCRIBED HOLIDAY GREETING.
