Piers Prodigal and other poems (Signed copy)
Signed by Ian Davie, his first published book of poetry
First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 21.5 × 14.5cm, 52pp.
Signed and dedicated by Ian Davie to the ffep.
Ian Davie's first book of published poems on themes of the philosophical, spiritual, nature and love. Davie sent the poems to Sassoon a year before publication who wrote, "I find all the poems distinguished in form and feeling and deeply experienced in thought. But one which shines out above them all is Piers Prodigal. This I believe to be a poem of real importance."
The book is in very good condition, the dustwrapper is fair, with sun-fading to the spine and bumping to the edges. It has been price-clipped but is now within a protective sleeve.
