8vo. Original decorative cloth; pp.vi, 122; a little toning to spine, small ink ownership inscription to front free endpaper, but a very clean copy of a book usually found in poor condition.
First edition. An early volume from the New Excursions into English Poetry series, which aimed to pair select anthologies of poetry with thematic art, with an editor and artist working on collaboration to show the poertry in a new light. The Poet's Eye is concerned with the ability to see and the nature of vision as it applies to art. The poems are accompanied by haunting forest-scapes from John Craxton.
