CUNARD, Nancy.
London: 1944. Octavo, 4pp. Unbound bifolium as issued. 3 cm closed tear to fore edge of each leaf, lightly toned, else very good. First edition, one of 400 copies, here out of series, as often for this title. Cunard left London during the second Blitz of 1944, staying with her fellow left-wing poets Sylvia Townsend Warner and Valentine Ackland in Dorset. While there she wrote the present poem, dedicated to Edward Thompson. In her modernist style, Cunard evokes the terror of experiencing war raids, whether from the air, sea, or ground. Uncommon, with WorldCat locating 16 copies in institutions. See Gordon & Gordon, Nancy Cunard: Heiress, Muse, Political Idealist, p. 293. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Peter Harrington. ABA/ ILAB. [London, United Kingdom]
