One of the best loved American poets of the 20th century, Frost is remembered for depicting rural life in his poetry. Although born in San Francisco, Frost had a deep association with New England, living and writing variously in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. It was for this book, his 1923 volume New Hampshire, that he won the first of his four Pulitzer Prizes and which contains perhaps his most beloved poem, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” Green cloth spine and green paper-covered boards with gold embossed title on spine and gold pasted-on cover title. Corners slightly bumped and chipped; the spine with light surface wear. In very good condition.
