POUND, EZRA. Hugh Selwyn Mauberley. Initials after designs by Edward Wadsworth. Tall 8vo, original tan linen-backed brown boards, printed paper cover label, uncut and unopened; pale toning on title. A superb copy of the first edition, number 194 of 165 unsigned copies from a stated total edition of 200. Although the colophon asserts that 200 copies were produced, both Gallup and Ransom note that fewer copies were in fact issued and that a few out-of-series copies and sets of unbound sheets are known to exist. Gallup A19; Ransom 373. London: The Ovid Press, 1920
