THURSO'S LANDING AND OTHER POEMS.

New York: Liveright, 1932. First edition. Issued in stiff boards covered in light mellow Venetian-red Munsell cover paper. With lemon-yellow Riviera laid paper, watermarked, printed in black and maroon. WONDERFUL ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED TO ALBERT BENDER, the Jeffers family friend, mentor and patron. The inscription reads "Inscribed for my dear Albert Bender / by his friend Robinson Jeffers. / Tor House, Carmel. -- March, 1932." Above the inscription Jeffers wrote an excerpt from the poem "Thurso's Landing," that reads " '-- but look at the size of the man; one of /those tiny / Black ants that come to dead things could / carry him, / With the oak too.' (Page 77)." The punctuation in the inscription does not match that of the printed poem. Above Jeffers' lavish inscriptions is Bender's own, which reads "With Every [sic] good wish to / Walter Meyer / from his friend Albert M Bender / 1932." Pasted inside the front cover is a photograph of Jeffers and Bender at Hawk Tower. The book is fine with a number of uncut sheets, and the price-clipped dust jacket is in near fine condition with just a bit of darkening, owing in part to the book being housed in a specially made brown leather and green cloth and stiff paper slipcase that is printed in gold on the spine. The slipcase spine shows a lot of wear. (A-71).
