2 Sterling (George) Selected Poems.
San Francisco: A.M. Robertson, (1923). 
Blue cloth lettered in gilt. A few smudges to lower front cover, but a bright very good copy, quite nice. Published first by Holt in NY; this copy has "Robertson" at the base of the spine, and the Robertson title page is a cancel, mounted on a stub. Evidently this Robertson edition was produced from the Holt plates.
