"The Sound of Trees" carbon typescript with manuscript corrections.

(N.p. c. 1915). Single page. Signed by Frost. The typescript has been copied in blue ink, with two manuscript corrections in Frost's hand. The first, a change from "need" to "wish" in the second line, appears in subsequent editions of the poem, which was first published in Frost's Mountain Interval in 1916. The second correction, a revision of "the" to "some" in the twentieth line, has not remained; the published line thus reads "I shall make the reckless choice." Creased where folded in fourths and a single spot of foxing not affecting the text, else a fine typescript from early in Frost's career, with unique pre-publication alterations. Item #28191
