        The Colossus and Other Poems

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1962 - First American Edition (so stated) of the poet's first collection, published one year before her death (and two years after the London edition). Tall, slim 8vo: [xii],83,[5]pp. Publisher's finely woven emerald-green cloth, spine lettered in black, Plath's monogram in blind to upper cover, top edge stained red, fore-edge untrimmed; blue typographic dust jacket lettered in white, priced $4.00, with correct "0562" publisher's code bottom of front flap. Fine and apparently unread. In 1959, after a stay at the Yaddo writer's colony, Plath and her husband, the poet Ted Hughes, returned to London. The following year, their first child, Frieda, was born, and Plath published this first book of poetry. "Neglected in its own day and even in ours, [The Colossus] brims with important and powerful poems. . . . set[ting] forth most of Plath's characteristic concerns and styles. They express a confusion about women's roles in relation to male control, a sense of marginality and inner contradiction, a struggle with low self-esteem combined with egotism, a horror at historical catastrophe, a paranoid dread of the social and physical environment, and an overwhelming desire for poetic voice."

        The Night Before Christmas with two original watercolors

      Worcester, MA: St. Onge, Achille J., 1962. Tudor, Tasha. 28ff. First issue. Illustrated in full color by Tasha Tudor. Fine in gilt-titled red leather, with a pictorial dust jacket, which shows a bit of faint creasing and edgewear. A.e.g. Together with The Night Before Christmas. One of 1,200 copies in the rare gilt-stamped, brick-colored cloth binding. Some bleeding from cloth onto endpapers and loss of gilt on edges, otherwise fine. Also together with two original watercolors by Tasha Tudor: the illustration showing the children "snug in their beds," and the frontispiece and title-page spread with the holly borders.

"Jenny Wren" was a well-loved character created by Tudor for stories she told to her children. "Jenny Wren" acted as the Editress of a series of magazines called The Bouquet, which were created by Tudor and shared within her family, until the Christmas 1962 issue was published by Tudor's newly established Jenny Wren Press in 1989. All housed together in a buckram and leather slipcase. (Massmann VIII; Tudor bibliography N27 & N28). (3 5/8 by 2 5/8; 93x67mm).
