ROBERT FROST. Program signed: "Robert Frost" on front cover, 8p, 6½x10. New York, 1949 November 16.Titled: "Program & Menu for/A Vermont Breakfast Party/COMMEMORATING/THE FIFTH AWARD OF/THE LIMITED EDITIONS CLUB'S/GOLD MEDAL/The WALDORF-ASTORIA/NOVEMBER 16TH 1949". Frost had started to inscribe it, writing "To", but then crossed it out and just signed his name. Robert Frost (1874-1963), who had published his first poem "My Butterfly: An Elegy" in 1894, was America's most celebrated poet by the 1920s. Noted for his metaphoric sketches of life in New England, he was awarded Pulitzer Prizes in 1924, 1931, 1937 and 1943. Frost, who publicly read and recorded a number of his poems, read his poem "The Gift Outright" at the inauguration of John F. Kennedy in 1961, becoming the first poet to take part in a Presidential inauguration. Lightly creased. Stray ink marks at blank right area. Fine condition.
