Thirteen Poems
1956. SHAHN, Ben. Thirteen Poems by Wilfred Owen. Illustrated with 15 reproductions of drawings and one wood-engraved portrait by Ben Shahn. Folio, bound in original half-morocco and slightly worn cardboard slipcase. Northampton: The Gehenna Press, 1956. |~||~||~||~||~| "One of the more ambitious books that this very talented artist has illustrated" (Garvey), and a very early work from Leonard Baskin's Gehenna Press. Baskin contributed the frontispiece which he engraved after Shahn's dawing. This is the first edition of Owen's poems in America, which are justly considered to be the most exquisite, the most musical, and perhaps the most bleak war poetry ever written. One of 400 copies in the original binding and slipcase, which is not always the case. The Artist and the Book 284. Franklin, Gehenna Press 8.
