A House to Be Born In.; Wood Engraving by George Lockwood.

Northampton, Mass. Gehenna Press, 1958. First edition. Small 4to, unpag. chapbook in wrappers, stapled, printed title label. Tiny nick to the edge of first leaf; minor denting, quite fine indeed. Item #205407

One of 100 numbered copies, signed at the colophon by the artist. Leyda is best known as a filmmaker and scholar of cinema, but he was also a specialist on Herman Melville and Emily Dickinson. His poem here is about Dickinson's house in Amherst, and the poem's text appears in black alternating with language from the house's deed in red. An elusive Gehenna Press title.
