Laid-in is an Autograph Letter Signed from Frost to Thomas Jacob, dated December 27, 1924, in the original envelope, together with a small sepia snapshot photograph of Frost, inscribed and signed in ink on the verso: "For Thomas Jacob, from his friend in the United States, Robert Frost."
Also present is one of the original proofs for Lanke's frontis woodcut, inscribed in pencil by Lankes: "To Robert Frost," who has signed it over in pencil, "To Thomas, from Robert Frost," with the added note: "Tentative cut that did not promise as well as the one used in N.H."
An extraordinary assemblage of Frost autograph material, four signed pieces, presented here in a large, purpose-built, quarter-leather green cloth solander.
