The Man with the Hoe and other poems (1899 first edition, inscribed copy)

New York: Doubleday, McClure, 1899. First printing. Hardcover. First edition, 1899, green cloth gilt, near fine, inscribed to 'my friend' Aage Nilsen on flyleaf, dated 1927. Nilsen, a dedicated collector of signed books, was in the habit of putting postage stamps near the inscription and getting them postmarked, thus he had these postmarked from Staten Island. Millais frontispiece in browntone, 134 pp, near fine. The poem appeared in a San Francisco newspaper first, and then in book form in San Francisco in 1899; this appears to be the first edition of the poem plus other selected works of his. Near Fine.
