THE COLD GREEN ELEMENT. Presentation Copy Inscribed To Ezra Pound.
Montreal: Contact Press, 1955.
1st Edition. Hardcover. Signed by Author. Superb Association Copy of the First Edition of this early Layton Contact Press title. Inscribed to Ezra Pound: "For Ezra Pound, / And all best Wishes, / Irving Layton / 2 April 1955". 8vo, pp. . Black cloth backed illustrated boards designed by Betty Southerland. As usual, the spine label is not present. A very good example showing some general use. The importance of this copy can not be underestimated as Layton, arguably Canada's earliest Modernist Poet had much respect for Pound, the poet & founder of Modernism. A solid thesis could be developed around this copy.
