Printing Details

First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14cm, 156pp.

Signed directly to the title page by both Iain Crichton Smith and Christopher Levenson.

From the dustwrapper "This book introduces, in one volume, three new British poets—Iain Crichton Smith, Karen Gershon, and Christopher Levenson. None of the three has yet had a book published, although all of them have had poetry broadcast and printed in various periodicals. They do not represent any school or movement, indeed their work shows strong individual differences."


The book is in very good condition, with slight tanning to the endpapers. The dustwrapper has light wear to the edges and is a little grubby to the spine. However, this remains a rare early publication of all three poet's works and a scarce signed early Iain Crichton Smith.
