Gaudete by Ted Hughes 1st / 1st 1977
First UK edition published by Faber & Faber in 1977. This is a near fine condition. The Leonard Baskin designed dust wrapper is very complete with no tears or chips and hasn't been price clipped. The spine is a shade tanned. The book is very presentable with no previous owner's ink or other marks. There is a smattering of foxing marks to the top text block. It is a collectible near fine copy.
'Gaudete' is a narrative poem telling the story of an Anglican clergyman abducted by spirits into the other world.
