Chivers, T. H., M. D.

The lost Pleiad; and other poems. With an introduction by Jesse Glass, Jr.

Goethe's Press, Westminster MD. 1980, 96p., typewriter-set text, 8.5x5.5 inch plain printed wraps, a modest copyshop job; one corner at the back is somewhat dampstained which affects several adjacent leaves, cover shows light offset soil, a sound and otherwise clean copy. Morbid stuff, death of a child and so forth, but this reprint appears to be a labor of love gotten together by the introduction writer, who finds a few figs amongst these thistles; per Glass's intro, Chivers corresponded with Edgar A. Poe, met him once, may have loaned him five bucks, and may also have been source for several of Poe's rhyme-schemes and themes. Chivers was a lifelong Swedenborgian, a less coherent follower than was his younger contemporary Andrew Jackson Davis
