A very early work by an author we most associate as being one of the premier short story writers of the 20th century. Collier wanted to be a poet and certainly received praise and notice from the likes of Edith Sitwell, whose review of the book was reproduced in the accompanying advertisement. The book was issued in two editions: a regular limited edition of 170 signed, numbered copies, and THIS deluxe edition of ONLY 15 vellum-spined copies, SIGNED & NUMBERED WITH AN ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT LEAF from the book! The book consists of the following poems: Address to the Worms, Three Men in One Room, Oh Soul be Changed into Little Water Drops, Sunday Morning, Excuse in Autumn, Brookside Reverie, and, Of Consolation through Murder. There is also a partial remnant of the original onion-skin dust-wrapper present. Includes advertising leaf. Heavy wear along top of boards but a RARE item. And you'll not be seeing me use that term very often!
