SYLVIA PLATH'S OWN COPY

PLATH, Sylvia Light Blue, Dark Blue An Anthology of Recent Writing from Oxford and Cambridge Universities

Macdonald, 1960.

First edition. Original blue cloth in printed dustwrapper. Sylvia Plath's own copy with her ownership inscription, "Ted+Sylvia Hughes / London 1960". A near fine copy with a touch of wear to the corners and a little foxing to the preliminary leaves in a near fine dustwrapper.

Sylvia Plath's own copy of an early anthology containing two poems from her and one from Ted Hughes. Although by no means Plath's first appearance in print, her contribution represents an early appearance in book form, predating her first individual collection, The Colossus, by a year.
At the time of publication Sylvia had been married to Ted for some three and a half years and was expecting their first child. She was in the habit of marking their books using her married name.
Inscribed copies of Plath's work are of the utmost rarity in commerce.

PROVENANCE: Sylvia Plath (1932-1963), ownership inscription; Ted Hughes (1930-1988); Olwyn Hughes (1928-2016).
