36 pages; Two of the Robert Frost Christmas poems, produced by the Spiral Press, bound together in a small volume with pattern-printed paper-covered boards. The 1944 poem, "An Unstamped Letter in Our Rural Letter Box" has a woodcut illustration by Thomas Nason (OCLC: 1389425); the 1945 poem, "On Making Certain Anything Has Happened" has decorations by Armin Landeck (OCLC: 34315635). The limitations were 2050 cc. and 2600 cc., respectively. They have been bound with the original wrappers preserved, both front and rear. The 1944 poem has the main Holt imprint; the 1945 poem has the imprint of William Sloane (Holt Vice President). At the end of this slender volume, another Christmas poem is bound in, "Millionary" by Robert Paul Smith (issued as a Christmas greeting by Helen K. Taylor - Henry Holt, in 1945). The contents of this nonce-volume are bound sufficiently loosely, and with spines intact, that a purchaser could remove and separate the individual poems -- having only to deal with a faint line of adhesion from glue at the gutter edges of the wrappers. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
