New Numbers. A Quarterly Publication of the Poems of Rupert Brooke, Lascelles Abercrombie, Wilfrid Wilson Gibson and John Drinkwater. Complete in four issues.
Ryton, Dymock 1914 - First editions. 4to. 203pp over four volumes. Grey printed card wrappers, variously a little marked, stained, chipped or tanned. The wrappers of the fourth issue tender but holding, and of the third issue defective and secured with tape, this issue also exhibiting a little internal spotting. A little light internal creasing to the first issue. Former owner initials to the upper wrapper of three issues (barely discernable on two of them), and a former owner name inked to the title leaf of another. The poor condition of issue three aside, quite a good set of the complete run (each issue the correct first edition) of this uncommon short-lived periodical, issued between February and December 1914, and comprising the first appearance in print of sixteen Rupert Brooke poems, including his noted 'War Sonnets' sequence which appear in the fourth and final issue, published five months before his death in April 1915. Keynes pp. 115. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
