In 1949 the LEC awarded Frost their Gold Medal in recognition of his being “that American writer who, during the five years previous to the time of the award, shall have published the book considered the most likely to attain the stature of a classic.” That book was The Collected Poems of Robert Frost published by Henry Holt. In 1950 the LEC issued their own edition of this. As designed by Bruce Rogers, it is surely one of the finest editions of an American poet issued in the 20th century.
A superior copy of an important book.
