Iliad of Broken Sentences by Rosemary Tonks, 1st/1st, 1967
London: The Bodley Head,(1967). First edition. This copy is near fine. The dustwrapper has not been price clipped and has the original price of 15s Net. There is minor wear to the edges of the dust wrapper and small chips to some of the corners. There is some light crumpling to the spine. The text block is free from marks and foxing but has some light browning. The pages are clean without previous owner’s ink. Overall, this copy is in a collectible near fine condition.
After publishing two poetry collections, six novels, and pieces in numerous media outlets, Tonks disappeared from the public eye after her conversion to Fundamentalist Christianity in the 1970s; little was known about her life past that point, until her death.
