The Poems
London: Chatto & Windus,, 1931. A new edition including many pieces now first published, and notices of his work by Edmund Blunden. Octavo. Original purple cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece. Contemporary ownership inscription. Spine a little faded, some partial fading to cloth sides, rubbing to ends and corners, partial toning to endpapers, still a very good copy in the spine-tanned, somewhat dust soiled, lightly marked jacket with small chips and tears to edges and corners. First Blunden edition of Owen's poems, second overall. The first collection of Owen's poems was published two years after his death, in 1920, with an introduction by Siegfried Sassoon. This edition, newly edited by Edmund Blunden, contains previously unpublished pieces, and is uncommon in the dust jacket. This copy derives, though without his ownership inscription, from the collection of Rolf O. Barber, who was a schoolteacher at Oundle and tutored Sassoon's son George. He developed a friendship with the poet and possessed a number of signed and inscribed Sassoon books.
