£175.00Price

London: Faber & Faber, (1970). First edition. This is a near fine copy. The wrapper is generally clean, but with small areas of rubbing. There are traces of black and red scuffs. It has not been price clipped and is showing the original £1.00 net price. The boards are in fine condition in black cloth and gilt title. Overall, this is a near fine copy of a highly collectible title. One of Hughes' most important works. Writing for the Ted Hughes Society journal in 2012, Neil Roberts said: “Crow holds a uniquely important place in Hughes’ oeuvre. It heralds the ambitious second phase of his work, lasting roughly from the late sixties to the late seventies, when he turned from direct engagement with the natural world to unified mythical narratives and sequences.”
