About this Item

A remarkable association copy, being the author's sister's copy of the publisher's long galleys and inscribed in an ediitorial hand in pencil at the head of the first sheet, "for Olwyn Hughes." Olwyn Hughes published the beautiful Rainbow Press editions (including MOORTOWN ELEGIES) and was long involved with her brother's career. Provenance: acquired from Rick Gekoski who originally purchased these proofs directly from the author's sister. Predictably, the top sheet is somewhat dust soiled, with wrinkling and edge tears. Overall, a very good copy of an intimate association of a rare, early state of a major collection. Bookseller Inventory # 008376
