About this Item

Grey papered boards with black titling. 84 pages. ~ Book is clean, binding tight, with very light sunning at edges. Dust jacket is price clipped, with light wear at top edge, a tiny chip at bottom of rear flap fold, ½-inch closed tear at bottom front panel, spine sunned. Now in a clear archival cover. ~~ Berry (1915-2006) was a respected British poet, critic and professor of English, and he published a number of his own collections as well as numerous works of criticism. This collection features a poem, commissioned as a radio play by the BBC in 1965, titled "Illnesses and Ghosts at the West Settlement," which deals with Erik the Red's colonization of Greenland in 986, and tells of real and documented events. Berry experiments with Anglo-Saxon rhythms in this piece, which is complemented by additional poetry about Greenland. ~~ This copy bears an inscription by Berry on the front free endpaper: "For Lionel and Gwendoline Butler, from Francis Berry (the radio play p. 4 ff)." An attractive, scarce signed copy. Bookseller Inventory # 001745
