Chicago Covici 1928 
First Edition. First Printing. This copy belonged to film director Rex Ingram, with his bookplate. One of 750 finely printed copies published for subscribers, of which this is #674. With illustrations by Reginald Marsh. A lightly handled copy with some darkening to the boards and edge wear, slight fading to the cloth spine. A long narrative poem depicting the capricious and rebellious moods of the late Jazz Age. As Louis Untermeyer says in his introductory piece: “The Wild Party is Noel Coward in terms of Black Bottom; it is the Masefield's Daffodil Murder translated into post-war, night-clubbed, bootlegged, sex-ridden, tabloid-jazzed New York.” Director Rex Ingram (1892 - 1950) is best known for his films Broken Feathers (1916), The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1921), The Prisoner of Zenda (1922), Scaramouche (1923), and The Garden of Allah (1929).
