The COMPLETE Poem of the Month Club - 48 Signed Broadsides by the Leading Poets of Great Britain and Ireland, in the Original Leather-Trimmed Portfolio
Poem of the Month Club, 1970-75 - Presented as a set, the complete Poem of the Month Club broadsides ? 48 folio-sized broadsides (approx. 15 x 11 inches each), each signed by the relevant poet ? loosely enclosed in the original issue, custom-made, half-calf portfolio with fabric ties. The broadsides are Fine, being very bright and uncreased (and thus suitable for framing), with a few having the thinnest strip of tanning to the extreme left edge. The binder has a few minor marks and a little rubbing to the spine tips and corners, but is otherwise excellent - clean and bright. The authors included represent a who?s who of the British and Irish poets of the day, including W H Auden, Philip Larkin, Seamus Heaney, Stevie Smith, C Day Lewis, Robert Graves, Stephen Spender, Thom Gunn, John Betjeman (who makes a handwritten correction), Kingsley Amis, Kathleen Raine, Douglas Dunn, Roy Fuller, John Fuller, Elizabeth Jennings and many others. Issued by subscription as four folios of 12 poems each, no limitation is stated; however, it is believed that the first two folios ran to no more than 1000 copies each, the last two somewhere in the region of 500 to 750 copies each - full sets rarely come to market. Also included, in Fine condition, is a quantity of supporting ephemera issued by the club to its subscribers ? member?s letters, updates and biographical information etc. A fascinating collection. Further images will be supplied upon request. All orders are sent very carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sturdy cardboard. A large and heavy item ? postage within the United Kingdom is free; suitably insured overseas shipping will be charged at cost.
