by Frost, Robert. (David H. Rhinelander)
1962. Classic black & white photograph of Frost by David Rhinelander, signed and inscribed "Robert Frost / to the Corbins / in friendship" in blue fountain pen ink. The image was used on the dust jacket of IN THE CLEARING (Holt, 1962) and for the pencil drawing for the 10 cent postage stamp issued in 1974. On the verso "Credit photograph to: / David H. Rinelander" and "Please return to / Robert Frost / 35 Brewster St / Cambridge Mass" also in blue fountain pen ink. Given that Frost died in January 1963, the present copy is a very early print of the photograph. When taking into account the "Please return to" statement, it is also likely that Frost sent this copy elsewhere (for publicity purposes?) prior to inscribing it as a gift. Fine condition.
