Om föremålet

8vo. Pale salmon cloth with black lettering. xii, 357pp. Frontispiece, illustrations. Very good. Faint binding edgewear, else internally tight and near fine. Attractive first edition (after the signed limited edition) of this two-parter, with Sandburg providing Part I and Angle Part II ("Letters, Documents & Appendix") -- with exceptionally scarce and unusual autograph additions: Neatly tipped to the front flyleaf is an unsigned Autograph Note from Sandburg, 1p, 5¼" X 2¼", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1930s]. Near fine. On a pale yellow lined slip, he boldly pencils: "> If I die a railroad man go bury me under Sand / > We live in company houses & c / > O wn [when] I die tk [take] my saddle fur a walk / rag-tag -- & bobtail." Whether Sandburg used this scrap later in a book or article is unknown, but likely these interesting fragments are unpublished. He was well known for filling his pockets with all kinds of notes he would pencil to himself: Things to do, unusual words and odd turns of phrase he liked, ideas for poems -- anything and everything that struck his fancy in some way. These chits rarely survived and few turn up -- he gave this example to good friend Ralph G. Newman (1912-98), founder of Chicago's noted Abraham Lincoln Book Shop. On the front pastedown facing Sandburg's chit is an Autograph Note Signed from Angle, 1p, 5¼" X 2¼", n.p., n.y. ca. 1943]. Fine. Boldly penned in blue ink, reading in full: "P.S. Since dictating this I have learned that the library has been sold en toto. Reputed price -- $1750. P.MA." Nice copy featuring two outstanding and cryptically intriguing holograph items.
