The sole UK printing published by The Curiously Strong, London in 1971. According to Ahearn, one of only 200 copies issued. The BOOK is in Fine condition. 15 unnumbered leaves mimeographed in blue ink from typescript printed on rectos only, stapled with black and plum stiff card covers. The author's rare first book, a collection of poetry, edited by Ian Patterson and issued as 'The Curiously Strong v. 4, no. 2, Oct. 31, 1971'. Some homoerotic content. Ackroyd of course would become the famous biographer of the City of London, and his early works are suffused with the lights of the city a remarkable work. He has also been very prolific, publishing poetry, fiction, and non-fiction, and has won many literary prizes. This first book so scarce that his second 'London Lickpenny', is sometimes erroneously cited as his first. The first copy that we have handled with only 4 copies located on COPAC. The book is protected in a transparent archival folder. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
