Octavo. Original white paper backed boards, white paper to sides printed wih decorations in black and blue, titles to spine, white paper title label to front board. Covers lightly rubbed and marked, scratch across spine and front board affecting title label, faint spotting to endpapers. Still a very good copy. First edition, first impression of the second "New Oxford Poetry" collection; number 7 of 50 large paper copies, this copy signed by all (but one, Ian L. Serraillier) of the contributors on the limitation leaf. Perhaps the most notable signature is that of John Waller, who would go on to be an eccentric alcoholic war-poet posted in the Middle East. Though his military achievements were far from esteemed (his greatest achievement was to lose a convoy of 23 trucks between Port Tewfiq, at the southern end of the Suez canal, and Cairo), his literary activity there was great; he founded the Salamander Society (alongside the poet Keith Bullen) and launched Oasis: the Middle East Anthology of Poetry from the Forces in August 1943. Indeed, he managed to confuse his military and literary priorities when, on his transferral to the Ministry of Information, he promoted as his sergeant-major the unlikely candidate of poet G. S. Fraser, qualified only by Waller's liking for his verses. After the war he published a number of well-received collections: The Merry Ghosts (1946), Crusade (1946), and The Kiss of Stars (1948); and, though alcohol quickly dried up his creativity in later life, he was awarded the Keats Prize in 1974.
