Ezra Pound’s Imaginary Letters were originally published between 1917 and 1918 in the Little Review, the American avant-garde literary magazine founded and edited by Margaret C. Anderson.
The Black Sun Press was an English-language publishing house based in Paris. Founded in 1927 by American expatriates Harry and Caresse Crosby, it was responsible for the publication of early works by seminal literary figures such as Joyce, Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, and Hemingway. The books, all handset, were extremely typographically unique. The Black Sun Press closed in 1970, following the death of the influential Caresse Crosby.
