    New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1923 (1924). First Edition. Hardcover. Very light wear to the spine tips and corners. At the bottom blank margin of the poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay," the previous owner has penned a poem by Emily Dickinson. Near Fine, lacking the dustwrapper. J. J. Lankes. Third Printing of the First Trade Edition of one of Frost's most notable books and winner of his first Pulitzer Prize containing such poems as "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Fire and Ice." Illustrated with woodcuts by J. J. Lankes. This copy is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the poet on the recto of the frontispiece for Harold Dickson along with a MANUSCRIPT stanza from "A Star in a Stone-Boat" in the poet's hand: "Some may [know] what they seek in school and church/And why they seek it there. For what I search/I must go measuring stone walls perch on perch." The poem is the first poem in the book after the title poem. Frost has left out the word "know," likely by accident, and changed the punctuation a bit, as was his wont, most noticeably here changing the original semi-colon after "there" to a period and beginning a new sentence after. Dickson is likely the British colonial administrator in the Middle East from the 1920s until the 1940s, author of several books on the region.
