Selected Poems. With an Introduction by James Ralston Caldwell
by Wood, Charles Erskine Scott; Sara Bard Field; Albert M. Bender
Portland: Privately Printed at the Grabhorn Press, 1937. Hardcover. Underwritten by Bender for his friends the poets in a run of 250 copies; [iv], 53p., letterpress on laidlined paperstock with rubricated titles throughout, bound in blue-grey paper over boards, lightly-glazed linen backstrip with printed paper label. Unopened signatures. Linen is spottily foxed; it, the spine label and endsheets are toned, top edge dusty. Front endpaper is further toned (despite cellophane enclosure) by a color-photo clipping laid in (shows two views of the poets' lovely Los Gatos home). A good copy; and we have replaced the cello with new mylar. Wood was an anarchist Oregon lawyer who defended the labor unions and radicals including Emma Goldman and was a member of the American Anti-Imperialist League. He wrote for The Masses, Liberty and Mother Earth. Married to Field, a Marxist, suffragist and believer in world revolution. Bender a much-beloved patron of the arts in the Bay Area.
