London : Faber & Faber, (1964). First edition. A celebrated collection of thirty-two poems and one of the high points of twentieth-century poetry. “The poems were written in or near Hull, Yorkshire, with a succession of Royal Sovereign 2B pencils during the years 1955 to 1963” (Philip Larkin).
Demy 8vo (23cm). (46),[ii]pp. Original purple cloth, lettered down spine in gilt; a couple of tiny spots and two small numeric stamps to front endpaper, but otherwise a very good copy in the dust-jacket – a design in stone, green, red and black – also very good indeed. Bloomfield A7a.
