Ezra Pound, un saggio e tre disegni.
First edition, an hors serie copy (from numbered edition of 1000), a translation by Pound’s daughter, Mary de Rachewiltz, of an essay that first appeared in Pound’s 65th birthday festschrift in 1950; this translation was published in part ‘to celebrate Ezra Pound’s return to Italy’.
Mary Rudge (daughter of Pound and his lover Olga Rudge), had married the Egyptologist Boris de Rachewiltz in 1946 – they bought and renovated Brunnenburg castle in the Italian Tyrol, and accommodated Pound there after his return to Italy in 1958. It remains the family home and hosts the ‘Ezra Pound Research Centre’.
