THE OCCIDENTAL: Volume XI, Number 4, JANUARY 1905.
Los Angeles, CA: Occidental Publishing Co., 1905. First edition. Scarce early Occidental College magazine. Includes the first appearances of Jeffers' poem "Faunus" [Alberts A-8] on p. 1 under his own name and of "El Dorado" on p. 5 under his "Edwin Rush" pseudonym. Jeffers is also mentioned as one of the "new men" in athletics for long-distance running (p.15). Large 8vo (7 x 9.75") light gray-brown stapled paperwraps with art-nouveau cover design; 20 pages. Staples badly rusted causing staining to surrounding areas and the innermost leaf to have detached (it's laid in); faint offset from printer's ink to first and last pages and, more noticeably, the rear cover. Which is too bad because other than the sort of vertical crease you might see from folding to be tucked in one's pocket and the faintest of dampstaining to lower corners, overall it is relatively bright and clean. Scarce to rare. Also included is a fine copy of the 20 x 26" centennial celebration poster issued by the college featuring Jeffers' poem, "Rock and Hawk."
