1915. London: Sidgwick & Jackson, 1915. Original blue-black cloth with printed spine label. First Edition, which consisted of 1000 copies. Included is the first book appearance of his best-known poem, "The Soldier," which begins~If I should die, think only this of me:--That there's some corner of a foreign field~That is for ever England.~This volume was published by Rupert Brooke's Rugby classmate Frank Sidgwick in June 1915, less than two months after Brooke had died in the war (at age 27). He was buried not in some corner of a foreign field, but on the Greek island of Skyros in the Aegean Sea: en route to Gallipoli with the British Mediterranean Expeditionary Force, he died of sepsis, purportedly from an infected mosquito bite. (Rupert's brother William was killed at Loos just seven weeks later.)~This is a near-fine copy (one small spot of cloth-bubbling on the front cover, just a hint of wear at the head of the spine); the extra spine label, with which each copy was equipped, has been applied. Keynes 6.
