A Shropshire Lad.
London: Kegan Paul, 1896 - Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in dark green morocco, titles and decoration to spine, rules to boards with floral corner-pieces, twin rule to turn-ins with floral corner-pieces, cream endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. The occasional minor blemish, but just about fine in a fine binding. First edition, first impression. One of fewer than 350 copies in this state: the first edition consisted of 500 copies, of which 150 were exported to the United States. Most of the poems were written in the first five months of 1895, a period coinciding with the arrest, trials and imprisonment of Oscar Wilde. Originally titled Poems by Terence Hearsay, the volume was refused by Macmillan, but published by Kegan Paul in March 1896 at Housman's expense. Hayward 305; Tinker 1243; Carter, Sparrow & White 2. [Attributes: First Edition]
