THE OCCIDENTAL: RARE 1905 GRADUATION ISSUE.

Los Angeles, CA: Students of Occidental College, n-d [1905]. First edition. Volume XI, Number 9, JUNE 1905 [year appears on cover flap]. Large 8vo (7 x 10") gilt-embossed heavy black envelope-style paperwraps; 112 pages, including ads. Includes the first appearance of Jeffers' poem, "The Stream" (p. 71), which is erroneously listed in Alberts as first appearing in the October 1905 issue of Out West Magazine. Photos and mentions of Jeffers are sprinkled throughout. He makes two appearances in cap-and-gown; is listed as Associate Editor of the magazine, appears in the group photo of the Stevenson Literary Society, is noted as competing in the two-mile run, and appears in the Track Team photo. Front cover starting, rear cover detached but present, small chips and tears to rear flap fold, 1-inch loss of paper at head of unprinted spine. Interior clean and tight, and despite the noted wear, the fragile covers are still quite attractive. There were only 18 students in the graduating class, so it seems safe to assume only a small number of copies were printed. Understandably rare.
