Macmillan 1934 - 8vo. When queried about this rarity on one occasion Golding responded: "I'm sorry to hear you found a copy of my alleged 'Poems.' I had thought them sunk without a trace." To another correspondent he confided: "I was an innocent young man and thought that books should reach their own level, surviving if good, and vanishing otherwise. Evidently POEMS did just that! I didn't even send my friends copies." According to Golding, the bulk of the edition was pulped. First edition of the author's first book, preceding his first novel, "Lord Of The Flies," by fifteen years. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
