Printing Details

First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 13.5cm, l + 641pp.

Philip Larkin's Oxford Book of Twentieth-Century English Verse provoked controversy and dispute on first publication in 1973. Warmly welcomed by fellow poets John Betjeman and W.H. Auden, it was also considered a quirky and idiosyncratic collection by some critics. Today it is recognized as a fine and wide-ranging selection of modern verse, valuable not least because it reflects the tastes of one of the best, and best-loved, English poets of the twentieth century.

Condition

The book is in good solid condition but has offsetting to the prelims and title page. The main body of text is in very good order. The dustwrapper is chipped to the edges and heavily sun faded to the spine and top edge of the front panel.
