HEANEY, Seamus. Wintering Out. London: Faber and Faber, 1974.
8vo., original paperback wrappers printed in black, grey and blue; pp. [vi], 7-80; very light spotting to edges and darkening along spine folds; else fine.
1974 reprint of the First paperback edition, which preceded the hardcover. Inscribed by the poet to the half title: "Seamus Heaney, University of Warwick, February 1975." The occasion was a reading which Heaney gave along with poet and Stand editor Jon Silkin.
Heaney's third collection of poems is surprisingly scarce in this condition, particularly signed.
