THE OCCIDENTAL: Scarce early Occidental College magazine from 1905.

Los Angeles, CA: Occidental Publishing Co., 1905. First edition. Volume XI, Number 5, FEBRUARY 1905. This particular issue of Jeffers' college magazine includes three poems attributed to him: "The Lake" (p. 8) by "R. J." [Alberts A-9]; "Nemesis" (p. 1) by "Rob York"; and "In the Garden" (p. 8) by "Edwin Rush." The latter two being attributed to Jeffers by the Robinson Jeffers Association and Jeffers scholar Robert Brophy. [Note: "Nemesis" herein is not the same as the poem appearing under that title in FLAGONS AND APPLES]. Large 8vo (7 x 9.75") light gray-brown stapled paperwraps with art-nouveau cover design; 20 pages. Staples slightly rusted, innermost leaf loose but present; light creasing from previous folding. If it weren't for some scattered stains throughout and splashes of light staining to pp.12-13, would be near fine. Even with the noted flaws, altogether about very good. Scarce to rare.
