Carl August Sandburg (1878 – 1967) was a Swedish-American poet, writer, and editor. He won three Pulitzer Prizes: two for his poetry and one for his biography of Abraham Lincoln. During his lifetime, Sandburg enjoyed great appeal as a poet, balladeer, and author. He was widely regarded as "a major figure in contemporary literature,"
VERY SCARCE selection of Sandburg's poems that includes "Chicago," originally published in 1916.
Overall VERY GOOD CONDITION for this clean pamphlet. Right corner of front wrapper lost (~ 1/2"). Uniform moderate age-toning to paper.
