Product description

Prynne's 5th poetry collection was published in 1969 in a limited edition of 477 copies, of which ours is no. 151. The poems range over a variety of subjects, and are in many different forms, displaying the writer's skill as comprehensively as possible. The book has been re-issued recently (2016), but first edition copies are rare.

Jeremy Halvard Prynne (b. 1936) is a British poet closely associated with the British Poetry Revival. Early influences include Charles Olson and Donald Davie. He excluded his first book, "Force of Circumstance and Other Poems" (1962) from his canon. "Poems" (1982) collected in one volume all the work he wanted to keep in print up to the time of publication, beginning with "Kitchen Poems" (1968). Further versions appeared in 1999, 2005, and 2015. Prynne was one of the key figures in the Cambridge group of Revival poets and was a major contributor to 'The English Intelligencer'. A Life Fellow of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, Prynne retired from his academic posts in 2005, and from his post as College Librarian in 2006.

Our copy is in good general condition, showing few signs of its age externally, apart from a whitish streak and a palish patch among the printed circles on the front cover, some very minimal creasing of the top corners, and some greyish stains (with another white streak) on the back. Inside, a previous owner's name is neatly inscribed in biro at the top of the half-title page, the stitched binding is firm, and all pages are clean and bright. A very nice, rare, first (limited) edition copy.
