Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alfred Francis Kreymborg (December 10, 1883 - August 14, 1966) was an American poet, novelist, playwright, literary editor and anthologist. He was born in New York City to Hermann and Louisa Kreymborg, who ran a small cigar store, and he spent most of his life there and in New Jersey. He was an active figure in Greenwich Village and frequented the Liberal Club. He was the first literary figure to be included in Alfred Stieglitz's 291 circle, and was briefly associated with the Ferrer Center where Man Ray was studying under Robert Henri. From 1913 to 1914, Kreymborg and Man Ray worked together to bring out ten issues of the first of Kreymborg's prominent modernist magazines: The Glebe. Ezra Pound - who had heard about The Glebe from Kreymborg's friend John Cournos - sent Kreymborg the manuscript of Des Imagistes in the summer of 1913 and this famous first anthology of Imagism was published as the fifth issue of The Glebe.
