SASSOON, Siegfried Complete Set of His 'Ariel Poems' Comprising: Nativity; To My Mother; In Sicily; To The Red Rose

Faber and Faber, 1927.

Signed first editions of all of Sassoon's Ariel Poems publications, from the library of Ottoline Morrell. The first two volumes signed by Sassoon to the frontispieces. The second two are each one of 400 copies signed by Sassoon. Colour frontispieces by Paul Nash and Stephen Tennant. A very good set, with some light wear and splits to the spine of To My Mother.

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.
