DEAR JUDAS AND OTHER POEMS

New York: Horace Liveright, 1929. First Edition. Cloth-backed Boards. 129 pages. SIGNED/INSCRIBED by Robinson Jeffers in ink on the title page, "I am glad to write my name here for Lawrence Henerley. Sincerely, Robinson Jeffers. Tor House, Carmel, California. May, 1937." Illustrated dust jacket. Cloth-backed boards. Gilt titling. 5 3/4" x 8 1/4". This book contains two longer poems (Dear Judas and The Loving Shepherdess") and six shorter poems. Per Robinson Jeffers on the jacket flap, "There is some relationship to thought between the two longer poems of the book; the shepherdess in the one, and Judas and Jesus in the other, each embodying different aspects of love; nearly pure, therefore undeluded, but quite inefficient, in the first; pitying in the second, possessive in the third." A Near Fine copy (trivial edgewear; slightly open hinge at endpaper) in a Very Good Plus dust jacket (darkened spine; toned edges; edgewear; closed front cover tear at fold}, now in a clear mylar protective sleeve.
