About This Item

The Fortune Press, London, 1945. First edition of the author's first book, this being in un-noted binding variant in grey cloth, lettered in gold at the spine. Printed on Glastonbury watermarked paper by S.C.Jennings & Sons Ltd. Slim 8vo. 36pp. A touch of wear to two or three extremities. Some production fault creasing to two text leaves. A very good copy. No dust wrapper. Bloomfield (2002) notes: "White laid paper watermarked: 'I Batchelor & Sons Ltd | HAND MADE'. Copies are also found with paper watermarked: '[crown] | Glastonbury' and with mixtures of both. This is due to the owner of The Fortune Press habitually buying end runs of paper stock for his printers". Printed in an edition likely not exceeding 500 copies. Thirty-one poems. Bloomfield (2002) A1.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket.
