The Friends of Amherst College Library, 1992. First Edition. Soft cover. Fine / No Jacket. Item #0104515
Published by The Friends of Amherst College Library in 1992, in an edition of 2,000 copies. Very fine condition. 7.5"x5". 8pp. This is the first and only publication of a newly-discovered Emily Dickinson letter. This pamphlet includes photographs of the entire letter in the poet's own hand. In part she writes: "Do not mind me Suzie-- If I do not come with my feet, in my heart I come-- talk the most, and laugh the longest-- stay when all the rest have gone-- kiss your cheek, perhaps while those honest people quite forget you in their Sleep!" This letter speaks to the poet's famous reclusiveness, in a most tender and almost romantic way.
