A rare Mina Loy edition

A postscript to yesterday’s post on Mina Loy: In 1994, I was browsing the poetry shelves of the Tulane University Library in New Orleans when I found, to my surprise, a copy of Loy’s Lunar Baedecker [sic], published in 1923. The title was misspelled, a major clue that, yes, this was the real thing. I photocopied the slim volume and sent it with a letter to the circulation librarian urging her to relocate it to the Rare Books room.

I just pulled that photocopy from my bookshelves, and out fell a copy of my letter, which I reproduce here, along with the title page of the book.
