My Brother Aquarius (Signed With A Lengthy - Tennant, Stephen - 1961. [1277146]
First UK and only printing published by Nash Publications in 1961. The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition. Coloured frontispiece repeating dustjacket design. Light marks and rubbing to the board edges. Light foxing to the title-page with the odd spot further in. Creasing to some lower page corners. The flimsy paper WRAPPER (designed by Tennant) is complete and is in Very Good + condition. Some light soiling in places. Mild edge-wear with a 5cm closed tear to lower front spine fold. The wrapper artwork looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. With a lengthy inscription in blank ink by Tennant across the front endpapers: 'For Diana Ogg, Hoping that the charms of prosody and ballad-making will continue to enthral her! - The magic of poetry is enigmatic, pungent, witty, wise and beguiling ~ Perhaps Diana is a poet herself?, yours Stephen Tennant, with cordial good wishes' . On the facing pastedown, Tennant has written three quotations from 'Shelley' and a "Sage'. A charming presentation copy from the one-time socialite and then recluse, his aesthetic nature developing a mystical tone. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.
