About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for 18 POEMS by THOMAS, Dylan.

Description:

First edition, first issue with a flat spine. Original black cloth with gilt titles to the spine in grey printed dustwrapper. Author's contemporary presentation copy, inscribed on the front end paper: "To D. J. Davies / from / Dylan Thomas / January 1935" A fine copy in a very good dustwrapper, which has small chips to the spine ends and small split in the centre. The author's first book, published in an edition of only 250 copies, a month after his twentieth birthday in December 1934. In April 1934 Thomas had won the Sunday Referee's Poet's Corner Prize, which included their sponsorship of his first book. He oversaw the publication of the book, staying in London to ensure that the printing went smoothly and to correct any typographical errors. Thomas's first poems were published in the Swansea Grammar School magazine in 1926. He attended Swansea from 1925-31 and had some success in athletics and acting in school plays, but passed only one exam (English). D.J. Davies was a history master at Swansea Grammar School, and in charge of the school drama department, with which Thomas was involved. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description The Fortune Press, London 1934 [i.e. 1942]., 1942. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 2nd Edition. Second edition of Thomas' first book, retaining the original 1934 copyright date but in fact issued mid-1942 - this being a later state, bound in green not red buckram. Slim 8vo. 32pp. Green buckram with slightly defective gilt lettering to spine. Fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. Knole Park Press imprint to the base of the final text leaf. Some uneven fading to buckram at upper board. Perhaps a shade of browning to endpapers and a touch of light occasional spotting throughout. Binding a little tender at one gathering. A nice crisp copy in non-price-clipped dust wrapper, a little dust marked, quite tanned at spine panel and a little rubbed and creased at the upper edge with a tiny area of loss to the head of the spine panel and three tiny enclosed tears. Former owner name and date neatly inked to the head of the front free endpaper. Originally issued in 1934 in an edition of 500 copies this second edition was issued by the Fortune Press sometime in 1942 (the copy held in the British Museum was received 7th July 1942). The press subsequently re-issued it a number of times, never altering the original 1934 date, and this particular copy is one of those later issues, bound in green buckram instead of the original red.
