Paris: Albert Messein, 1926. Third Edition. Hardcover. Inscribed by Crosby: "For "O[livia] Ames/ with love/ from Harry/ Paris MCMXXVII/ "But I will hold you in a thought" all in Crosby's hand on second blank before the half-title page. This is the third edition of SONNETS - see Minkoff A3 (c). One of 100 copies on Arches, this one unnumbered (as are apparently many, if not all). Wrappers bound in vellum, with hand-lettered spine. A fascinating production of what would later become Crosby's famed Black Sun Press. Vellum is bowing a bit outward, else excellent; contents also excellent.
