Printing Details

1920 & 1921. First editions, hardbacks bound in the original blue cloth with paper labels to spine. Both c 19 × 13.5cm, 318pp + 190pp.

Two first editions of John Freeman's poetry. Freeman (1880–1929) was able to give up a career in insurance to concentrate on his writing, winning the Hawthornden Prize in 1920. Poems New and Old contains his Last Hours, which was set to music by Ivor Gurney. He was a good friend of Edward Thomas and the Dymock poets.


Both books are in good condition, the binding is a little loose in both and both have some small amount of edgewear and rubbing but they remain perfectly readable.
