A Letter of Vachel Lindsay on the "Movies."

[n.p.]: Privately Printed, 1945. First edition. Original Wraps. [4, 5 [facsimile], 3] pp. Tall sewn green printed wrappers. One of 25 copies, printed for Nathan van Patten (likely by the Grabhorn Press but unconfirmed). Reproduces in facsimile a five-page letter from Lindsay to Paul Powell, dated July 24, 1916. Nathan van Patten was the longtime director of the Stanford University Libraries (1927-1947) and later professor of bibliography. Tape residue at spine (apparently removed from housing), small withdrawal stamp of the Bancroft Library on the first text page. Lower corner slightly creased. WorldCat locates fifteen copies, so if the limitation is to be believed, quite scarce outside of institutions. Very Good. Item #1482
