STEIN, Gertrude

STEIN, Gertrude An Acquaintance With Description

The Seizin Press, 1929.

First edition, one of two copies printed on wood pulp paper. This copy inscribed by Robert Graves (owner of the Seizen Press), "Louise with love from Robert Graves (printer + publisher)." Publisher's unprinted brown buckram. A very good copy with the spine a little browned.

The second work of the short lived Seizin Press founded by Graves and Laura Riding in 1927.
Robert A. Wilson in his bibliography of Stein notes that "at least one trial copy is known in full binding, but printed on wood pulp paper instead of the heavy rag paper used for the edition. This copy does not carry the limitation label."
