The Second World War poetry of Keith Douglas
First thus, hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 164pp.
A new and revised edition of the 1951 publication of Keith Douglas' poetry. Keith Douglas was a notable Second World War poet who was killed during the invasion of Normandy in 1944. He served in the Middle East, and this edition also includes some of his sketches. The introduction was written by Edmund Blunden who was Douglas' tutor at Oxford.
The book is in good condition, with a neat previous owner's inscription to the ffep, and the top outer corner neatly cut off. The pages are clean and the binding is secure though there is a little browning and foxing to the page edges. The dustwrapper is chipped and browned to the edges and with light overall wear. It has been price-clipped but is now within a protective sleeve.
