Des Imagistes, edited by Ezra Pound, was the first of the imagist anthologies to be published. Its first incarnation was as an issue of The Glebe, the little magazine edited by Alfred Kreymborg and Man Ray and published from September 1913 through November 1914. The Des Imagistes issue appeared in February 1914 (vol. 1, no. 5). The imagists continued to bring out anthologies, but Ezra Pound disassociated himself from the group.
