Vintage Rare First Printing 1969 Poetry Book, The Pursuit of Poetry Book Louis Untermeyer, Gold Yellow Red Cover Hardback Collectable Book

$100.00 $125.00

The book is in great condition. It has one tear at the top back and some wear around the top of the dust jacket. For a book from 1969 it is unbelievable this book is as fresh and clean as it is. Other than the wear on the dust jacket there are no punctures, rips, tears, or smokey stains or odors on or in this book. It is remarkably clean. The front cover colors are fresh and vivid. The rear cover picture of Louis Untermeyer could pass for being printed yesterday as far as clarity. The writer points out that this is a book "for those who care for poetry and for those who fear they cannot comprehend it". There is also a dictionary for poetic terms included in the book. The book looks very plain and easy to pick up and read while at the same time it has an academic feel.

The book weighs 18.9 oz.

The book is 5.75" wide and 8 5/8" long.

It is 1.25" thick.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you insure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I am very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. If you see a questionable mark that is not in the description on an item you are interested in please contact me.
