PLATH, Sylvia

FAMILY PRESENTATION COPY, WITH DRIPS FROM THE COURT GREEN THATCH

PLATH, Sylvia Ariel

Faber, 1965.

First edition. Original red cloth with gilt titles in dustwrapper. Presentation copy, from the author's husband and editor. Inscribed on the front endpaper for his uncle Thomas Farrar, "To Tom - Sorry about the cover-stains - it's drip from the thatch, not careless coffee. Ted". A near fine copy in a near fine dustwrapper. Both book and dustwrapper are fresh and clean, aside from the thatch drip Hughes mentions in the inscription. This chiefly effects the spine and lower panel of the dustwrapper and the bottom edge of text block.

A family presentation copy of one of the most significant collections of post war poetry. The poems were written in the last months of Plath's life, but not published until two years after her death, collected and edited by the her husband Ted Hughes.

PROVENANCE: Thomas Farrar (1891-1951), Hughes's maternal uncle; then sold at Sothebys, 16th July 1984 (lot 214).
