[Paris: Contact Editions], 1929. First edition. 44 pp. Publisher's printed wrappers. Some handling wear to covers, near fine, unopened. One of 310 copies, printed by Brulliard in Saint-Dizier, the first Contact book not to be printed by Darantiere. It was also the final Contact book, published before McAlmon returned to America in October 1929. Decorations and illustrations by Hilaire Hiler.
McAlmon's "little epic," a poem in which he tried to "define the psyche of a nation... still in the process of becoming." (Ford). An attractive and fragile production, certainly one of the more uncommon Contact publications, especially in decent condition. Item #2101
