All issues with long inscriptions except Vol. 2, No. 1. "There were four issues of what Kemp called Provincetown Tideways: A Miscellany. The first issue contained a long poem of Kemp's called `Rhyme if Provincetown Nicknames.' Although they included some verse, and on long essay, the four issues of Provincetown Tideways served mainly as a vehicle for the serialization of `Poet's Pilgrimage.' Kemp obtained revenue from local businesses who advertised in his periodical. The copy for these unique advertisements, often put into verse, was written by `Harry the Poet.' Each issue of Provincetown Tideways was dedicated to Provincetown, `Where Greatness Comes True'"-Brevda, Harry Kemp: The Last Bohemian, p.200. Light soiling to wrappers, else very good.
