OH -- I SHOULD have said what shall we put for the first edition & it  
printings (no Pound), plus what shall we say for the second edition  
(Pounded), if anything is required beyond what is there now?  Here's

Notes on
The Anthology of English & American Poetry

The first edition of this title excluded the poetry of Ezra Pound  
because of that poet's work on behalf of the Axis in WWII. Protests  
from the poetry community ensued and Cerf relented, including Pound in  
the second edition. Click here to read a couple of contemporary  
articles on the controversy.
