Printing Details

First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20 × 13.5cm, 141pp.

This copy comes from the library of Anne Powell, anthologist, author and historian of both the First and Second World Wars, and has been signed to her by the poet's widow, Gweno Lewis. This copy was also Roy Fuller's review copy and loosely inserted is the publisher's slip with his handwritten pencil notes, and corresponding marginal annotations.

Through his letters home and six short stories, Alun Lewis paints a vibrant picture of life in India as a British serviceman during World War II. Intimate, vivid, observational, and always filled with emotion, this is a rare literary example of one Welshman’s experience of empire and war.


The book is in very good condition for age, with a slight lean to the spine. The dustwrapper is very good also with some light wear to the edges but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
