SASSOON, Siegfried To My Mother No. 14 of The Ariel Poems

Faber & Gwyer, 1928.

First edition. Original blue paper wrappers, printed black. Signed by Sassoon above the Tennant illustration. Colour illustration by Stephen Tennant. A very good copy, a little faded.

A meaningful association copy. Ottoline Morrell was one of the most significant figures in Sassoon's life as his war poems began to gain popularity.
She became aware of him when she read his poem 'To Victory' in The Times on 15 January 1916, and traced him through Edmund Gosse. He would stay at Garsington when on leave and Morrell was immediately attracted to him, but ultimately failed to have him fall in love with her. Despite this, she did much to support and promote his work, including turning Virginia Woolf into a admirer and making countless important literary introductions.

PROVENANCE: From the library of Ottoline Morrell (1873-1938), sold at her sale, Christies, 1st November 2006, lot 132.
