About This Item

The sole UK printing privately published by Narodiczky, London in 1915. The slim fragile booklet is in Very Good condition. Original buff fragile paper wrappers with titling to the front cover in black. Some loss to the upper and fore edge of the front cover and also the upper edge of rear cover. The covers are lightly toned to the edges and there are some minor professional repairs to the spine. No inscriptions and the 18 pages of contents are complete. Some very light creasing to the outer edges of some of the pages. A very good copy of this exceptionally fragile publication which is now protected in a loose Mylar archival cover. This was the second of only three poetry pamphlets that Rosenberg published in his lifetime. This work, containing 22 poems, was published in a run of roughly 100 copies just prior to his enlistment in the army. Rosenberg attended the Slade School and quickly became one of the most celebrated of the British war poets, before his untimely death on the Western Front in 1918. Collectible. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
