About This Item

Dublin: Andrew Carpenter, 1979. Le Brocquy, Louis. First edition. From an edition of 125, this is one of 30 copies issued in black morocco and offered for sale. Illustrated with two lithographs by Louis Le Brocquy. Signed by Heaney, Le Brocquy, Liam Miller the designer, and the publisher, Andrew Carpenter. The book was printed at the Dolmen Press. Heaney's verse retelling of a section of Dante's Inferno is one of his scarcest books, and is lacking from most Heaney collections. Small bump to spine foot, else a fine copy in black blindstamped morocco, housed in the publisher's black paper-covered slipcase with orange title label, and contained within a green cloth folding case. (Brandes & Durkan A19).
