The Only Child & Sorrows, Passions and Alarms
Two volumes of James Kirkup's autobiography
1952 & 1959. First edition hardbacks. Please see below for details.
Two volumes of autobiography from James Kirkup, the English poet, translator and travel writer:
1. The Only Child (Hardback, no wrapper, ex-Boots library). The author's earliest years. Good condition, with some inoffensive pencil marginal annotation.
2. Sorrows, Passions and Alarms (Hardback in wrapper). The author's life between the ages of six and 18. Good condition, some fading and wear to the wrapper and some foxing to the prelims.
Both copies have a bit of wear but are both in strong readable condition.
