London: Faber and Faber, . Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Author's first book. "Mr. Vernon Watkins is a Welsh poet whose work hitherto has appeared only in periodicals and in recent anthologies. The only influence apparent upon his poetry is one which he has thoroughly assimilated - that of W.B. Yeats. Otherwise his style differs radically from that of any of his older contemporaries, except for a racial quality which gives it something in common with that of Dylan Thomas. Mr. Watkins is undoubtedly a poet with an uncommon sense of rhythm as well as imagery" (jacket). Bound in grey cloth boards with purple title to spine. Pencilled ownership signature of Scottish poet Sydney G[oodsir] Smith, Edinburgh, 1941, on the front endpaper. In lightly darkened and rubbed gray dust jacket with purple title to spine.
