Light Blue, Dark Blue
Macdonald, London 1960 - An Anthology of Recent Writing from Oxford and Cambridge Universities. Edited by Julian Mitchell & John Fuller for Oxford William Donaldson & Robin McLaren for CambridgeMacdonald, London, 1960. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in navy blue. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in the dust jacket. From the library of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath with Plath's inscription to the front free endpaper, "Ted & Sylvia Hughes London 1960". A breath-taking copy of this notable anthology famously printing (besides a poem from Hughes's Hawk in the Rain) the first appearance of Plath's work in a regularly published book. Her privately issued publication A Winter Ship came out later in the year as did her landmark collection, The Colossus. Books inscribed by Plath are deeply uncommon for diverse reasons: her early death of course and also for reasons of physical isolation. The form of the present inscription - her use of the adopted surname combined with her choice to name Ted before Sylvia - seems telling and somehow poignant. We have never seen or even heard of another copy of this book bearing an inscription by Plath. (Provenance - Olwyn Hughes).
