Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press, 1969. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine bright unclipped dj with a touch of wear to the head of the spine. In 1927, Nancy Cunard took up hand printing and shortly thereafter she founded the Hours Press outside of Paris. She published 23 books in the three years she operated the press including works by Richard Aldington, George Moore, Louis Aragon, Samuel Beckett, Robert Graves and Ezra Pound. Cunard was one of the most flamboyant inhabitants of the Bohemian art crowd in Paris in the Twenties, with the apex of her artistic achievements being the production and publishing of the comprehensive anthology "Negro" in 1934. In this book, Cunard recounts her experiences as a small press printer and publisher in the late 1920s and early 1930s in Paris. Item #22185
