Selected Poems Signed by Stephen Spender 1st / 1st 1940
First edition published by Faber and Faber in 1940. This is a very good or better copy. The wrapper is not price clipped displaying the correct price of 2/6 net. Someone has written their name (from Charles) neatly on the inside flap. The spine is toned. Otherwise there is no loss to the wrapper and it is in presentable condition. The book is also in excellent condition. A couple of pages of foxing to the front and rear otherwise clear. Stephen Spender has inscribed this copy to fellow author Laurie Lee to the title page. He has inscribed "To Laurence Lee inscribed by Stephen Spender". An early collection of poetry from Stephen Spender and very rare to be inscribed to Laurie Lee. Spender was an early supporter of Laurie Lee's work and along with Cyril Connolly his fellow editor at Horizon, they published his poems. A rare literary association.
