Apollyon: And other poems of 1940 [Association Copy]


FIRST EDITION, FROM THE LIBRARY OF J. B. PRIESTLEY. 8vo, pp. viii, [46]. Black cloth, red lettering. With J. B. Priestley’s ex libris pasted to front pastedown. Slight lean to spine, top-edge dusty. Evenly toned, mull showing at p. 6-7, still, binding firm. In the original dust jacket: spine sunned and with nick to middle, tanned and lightly shelf-soiled. Overall, a very good copy of Hamilton’s belated, anti-fascist cri de couer.
