Printing Details

First edition, hardback bound in the original red cloth with gilt titling to spine and front. Fore-edge untrimmed. 19.5 × 13cm, 98pp, [6pp ads]

A collection of poetry by Arthur Scott Craven, some taken from his previous two books of verse—Poems in Divers Keys and Joe Skinner, and also including some published for the first time. The author was an early twentieth century actor, author and playwright. He served in the Great War and was killed in April 1917 whilst serving with The Buffs.


A very good copy. The spine is a little sun-faded and there is light rubbing to the corners. The pages are clean with a light foxing to prelims. There is a previous owner's inscription (the poet A J Perman, 1909) to the ffep, and also an erased pencil annotation. Quite a rare copy.
