Lot 638: Signed book: North of Boston. Later printing. NY: Henry Holt and Company, 1923. Hardcover, 6 x 9, 137 pages. Signed at two different times on the first free end page in fountain pen, "Robert Frost, South Shaftsbury, Vermont, 1924" and signed and inscribed much later, "To Virginia and John Flanagan, from Robert Frost, the very best always." Autographic condition: very good, with irregular blocks of toning to the signed page. Book condition: VG-/None, in a VG+ custom-made quarter leather clamshell box. A desirable pairing of early and old autographs, with the first holding two especially fine associations—Frost lived in Shaftsbury and was named the 'Poet Laureate of Vermont,' and 1924 marked the year of his first Pulitzer Prize.
