Sketches in the Life of John Clare : Written by Himself

£34.99

Product description

Published in 1931 by Cobden-Sanderson.

Although written by John Clare these 'sketches' were not published in his lifetime. It was not until 1931 that Edmund Blunden edited the notes and published them with useful additions including copies of letters to and from Clare's publisher John Taylor. They reveal a fascinating insight into the life of one of the great Victorian poets.

The cover has some light wear and scuffs, and the spine is slightly faded. There is a small inscription on the frontispiece: 'J C Morris 15th Jan 1934'.

The internal pages all appear in good condition.
