The Explosion Signed by Philip Larkin 1st / 1st 1970
Published in June 1970 in a signed edition of 1000 copies only available initially to the members of the Poem-of-the-Month Club. It is a single sheet, about A3 in size and is printed on one side only. Larkin's poem 'The Explosion' would later go on to be reprinted in Listener magazine a couple of years later.
This copy is good only. There is a crease towards the bottom of the sheet where a previous owner has folded it into a frame. There is a tape mark below the crease and on the reverse three more tape marks. Larkins signature is at the bottom of the poem. An affordable way to obtain the signed poem, with faults stated.
