LOT 3093
CUMMINGS, E.E. &. New York: Privately Printed, 1925. Limited edition, this being number 214 of 333 copies, 8vo (213 x 138mm.) (Toning, minor soiling to p.50.) Original green boards (loss to half of spine, rubbing to extremities). Note: limitation number in ink. Cummings's first book of poems had appeared two years earlier, in 1923. Cummings wanted that volume to be called 'Tuilips & Chimneys' but the publisher over-ruled and the book came out as 'Tuilips and Chimneys'- and with fewer poems than Cummings wanted. So Cummings privately printed this volume which contains those excluded poems and is titled, simply, '&'. An early example of his typographical originality. Provenance: John Housmann (name inscribed to front-free endpaper).
