Boston-born Braithwaite came to literary priminence with his Anthology of Magazine Verse for 1912 a series published through 1929. By 1926, the book totaled more than 800 pages and included not only more than 200 poems published during the previous year but also lists of magazines that accepted poetry, articles about poetry, lists of “best poets,” and biographies of poets. This volume also contained essays, inluding Moore’s “‘The ‘New” Poetry since 1912,” never reprinted by Moore. But her brief biography did appear on page 26 (pagination starts new with each section of the book).
