Description:
London: Sunday Referee and the Parton Press, 1936. First edition, first issue of Thomas' first book, one of 250 copies. Octavo, original cloth. Association copy, inscribed by the author to Desmond Hawkins, who was Dylan's literary editor and close friend, with a playful (and perhaps drunken) inscription which attempts to conflate their names, maybe in an effort to create a new single persona out of the two of them: "To and from Hawkins Dylan Desmond Thomas Dylan Desmond Dylan Desmond Hawkins Thomas Dylan Desmond."

Housed in a custom clamshell box. Rare and desirable signed and inscribed. Dylan Thomas is famous for his acutely lyrical and emotional poetry, his imaginative use of language and vivid imagery in his poems. The Eighteen Poems is his first collection of poetry and reveals some of Thomas's key themes, which he was to return… Read more

Description:
He writes to family friend Mary Davies on the day of his father's death. "You will, I know, be very sorry to hear that my father died today. It was a very peaceful death. You will excuse my mother not writing personally to you, at this moment. She is bearing up, however, wonderfully well, and sends her fondest love to you...." He signs with the familiar, "Dylan." With hand written envelope. One of Thomas's most famous poems, "Do not go gentle into that good night," was written by the poet on the impending death of his father. Thomas's father died at age 76 of cancer. He taught English at Swansea Grammar School where Dylan himself had gone to school. Thomas attributed his attraction to poetry to his father. This brief moving letter associates the poet not only to his famous poem but also with his complex relationship with his father.

Old folds. 1 p., docketed with date "31 Aug 1949" as receipt on verso by BBC. 8vo.

I'll be very pleased indeed to read a 20 minute selection of my poems on the Third Programme sometime at the end of September - with just the minimum amount of linking material. Are any links, other than the titles of the poems, really necessary? Would I be expected to announce the titles of the poems myself? If so, then perhaps a few introductory words would be needed as well ...." The program was broadcast on September 24, 1949, with Thomas reading, among his own poems, "There Was a Saviour," "If my Head Hurt a Hair's Foot," "Poem in October," "After the Funeral," "A Refusal to Mourn" and "In My Craft or Sullen Art."
