Pierrot wounded and other poems

New York: Britton Publishing Company, 1919. viii, 87p., decorated title page, ribbed black 7.5x5 inch cloth boards gilt; signed, warmly inscribed, and datelined by Roberts. Somewhat edgeworn with lightly-cracked hinges, it appears that some scuffing of extremities has been disguised (successfully) with watercolor or shoe-polish. #13 of 550 hardback copies of the first edition. Inscription in full: "To Virginia H.Davenport, in memory of Washington Square days and a friendship that has grown with the years. Walter Adolphe Roberts June 9, 1919"

Title-page bears a printed line-drawn sketch of a night-drenched battlefield and sprawled corpse, from which a Pierrot-figure arises to seemingly question the moon overhead.
