    Animal Poems

    , , ,
    Animal Poems By Ted Hughes Limited edition (Crediton: Richard Gilbertson, 1967). Signed by Ted Hughes to the front endpaper. One of 100 copies produced. 1-6 were interleaved throughout with blank paper, on which the poet wrote out each of the thirteen poems in full, to face the printed text and were also bound in full dark green levant morocco gilt by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. 7-16 were interleaved with three manuscript poems and bound in half morocco gilt by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. 17-36 contained one poem in manuscript and were bound in decorative covers. The example on offer here is one of the 37-100 copies that were signed by the author. Original salmon fur-grained covers with lettering to the upper cover in black. Faint marginal soiling to spine with minor wrinkling here and there; top edge of upper cover and opening few pages turned up slightly; area of minor staining to lower cover with a little colour transfer to fore-edge of rear endpaper, contents nice and clean otherwise and firmly bound. A very good example of a rare book.

    Murder in the Cathedral

    , , ,
    Murder in the Cathedral By T. S. Eliot First edition, first impression (Faber and Faber, 1935). Signed by the author to the title page. Original purple cloth with lettering to spine in gilt. Some spotting to endpapers and paste-downs with a small tear to the bottom gutter of some pages, which likely occurred when the edges were cut during the production process. Boards nice and clean and free from any bumps or marks. The original and unclipped dust jacket has a few shallow chips to corners and spine ends with a touch of toning to spine panel and isolated area of marking to lower panel. A very good copy indeed. Rare signed.
