The Iron Laurel
Sidney Keyes' first book of verse
First edition, card covers in dustwrapper. 18.5 × 12cm, 48pp.
Sidney Keyes' first book, and one of only two published in his life-time. He is considered one of the outstanding poets of the Second World War. He was killed in action in Tunisia in 1943.
The book is in good condition with light tanning to the pages but clean and well-bound. The dustwrapper is a little grubby but now within a protective sleeve.
