Collected Poems 1954

Day Lewis, C.


1st Edition

Light blue cloth boards with gilt and blue lettering to spine. Bright, square and clean. In blue typographic dust jacket, unclipped with the original price of 21s.net. Jacket with some chips and closed tears to head and slightly stained to upper panel. Lower panel and edges tanned as usual and spine slightly sunned. *** This beautiful collection includes almost everything C. Day Lewis had written until 1954: ‘In principle I think a Collected Poems should offer everything one has written. In practice I have excluded most of the last few pages of A Time to Dance, and all but two choruses of Noah and the Waters.’
