Cave Birds

£16.99

Product description

Cave Birds by Ted Hughes

Drawings by Leonard Baskin

An Alchemical cave Drama

First Published in 1978 by Faber and Faber limited.

Part of Ted Hughes's poem sequence cave Birds was first published in a limited edition in 1975 by the Scolar Press as a magnificent portfolio containing both fine reproductions of drawings by Leonard Baskin and a number of facsimiles of the poet's work sheets.

The text of this first full general edition is somewhat altered from that which appeared in 1975, and from the dramatic reworking staged at the IIkley Festival. Some of the original poems have been re-written; others have either been eliminated or replaced; others have been added.

The original Baskin drawings are included here with others specially made for this edition. The result is a superb and haunting combination of word and image.

Book has black boards which have a white stain but are solid.Pages are clean and securely bound.Dust jacket in poor condition with tears and heavy wear but intact.Printed in 1978, first edition.
