Warmly inscribed by Allen Tate, to publisher Harry Duncan, on the front flyleaf, in year of publication: "For Harry [Duncan], with gratitude and love, Allen. September 14, 1948" [Harry Duncan, of The Cummington Press, published a number of books by Allen Tate (spanning four decades), including 'Sonnets at Christmas,' 'Fragment of a meditation: 1928,' etc.]. Harry Duncan published Robert Lowell's first book in 1947, after meeting him through Allen Tate, his godfather (the three men were converts to Roman Catholicism). A nice association copy.
