Lenten Illuminations
Cambridge: University Press, for Siegfried Sassoon and Geoffrey Keynes,, 1958. Sight sufficient. Octavo, [pp. 8]. Original blue cloth-backed marbled boards by Mansell & Co., titles gilt to front cover. With the glassine wrapper. Text printed in black with floral blue ornamentation. Minor rubbing to spine ends, light marginal foxing; a very good copy in the jacket with nicks to edges, especially top edge, crease to rear panel, and small loss to spine ends and head of front cover. First edition, limited issue, one of 35 copies. Laid-in is Sassoon's Rogation, with the author's manuscript correction to the text. "A few copies" of Rogation were first printed thus, on a single leaf, in 1960 at the Marlborough College Press; the poem was reprinted in The Path to Peace, published later the same year (Keynes). Towards the end of his life Sassoon converted to Catholicism and was admitted to the faith at Downside Abbey. Both the poems in Lenten Illuminations, and Rogation, were written at the time of his conversion. Both works are uncommon, Lenten Illuminations traced institutionally eight times world-wide, four times in the UK and four times in the US; Rogation was not traced in the UK, and found at just two locations in the US.
