THE MAN WITH THE BLUE GUITAR INCLUDING IDEAS OF ORDER
Edition: First printing.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1952. dj. Hardcover first edition - This book consists of the poems in the 1937 edition of "Man with the Blue Guitar" and the 1936 edition of "Ideas of Order." Despite the fact that Stevens, arguably the best American poet of this century, had won the National Book Award in 1950, and been awarded the prestigious Bollingen Prize in Poetry in 1949, this book still had a small printing of only 2000 copies.
Condition: Fine in a near fine dustjacket (spine slightly darkened, as is common with this title, and price-clipped.) A very attractive copy.
