The Wild Party. Joseph Moncure MARCH.

The Wild Party

New York: The Citadel Press, 1949. First Citadel Edition. Octavo (21.5cm); beige cloth, with titles stamped in dark green on spine; green topstain; dustjacket; xii,13-123,[5]pp; illus. Upper corners gently tapped (though still sharp), else Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket, unclipped (priced $1.98), with a few tiny tears, some wear at crown, and corresponding wear to upper corners.

Attractive edition of March's classic 1928 long verse narrative poem, a violent story about a vaudeville dancer who throws a booze and sex-filled party, eventually coming to a bad end. With an introduction by Louis Untermeyer, and black & white illustrations throughout by Steele Savage; the dustjacket art is unattributed, obviously later, and lurid in suitable proportion to the poem's contents. One of the classic tales of jazz-age New York.

Price: $125.00
