ANTHOLOGY. Poems of Death. London: Frederick Muller, 1945.
8vo. Original decorative cloth, with illustrated dust wrapper; pp.viii, 112; some nicks and a little toning to the spine of the wrapper, but otherwise a very good copy with a small ink ownership inscription to front free endpaper.
First edition. This delightfully macabre anthology of poetry focuses on the dying, the dead and the undead, pulled from the greatest poets in English history. The illustrations by Michael Ayrton contribute heavily to the spooky ambience, making this one of the more desirable titles in the New Excursions into English Poetry series.
