1940 Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Proof Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce
A very scarce proof copy, in the publisher's original paper wraps.
A collection of short stories from Dylan Thomas, all set in the author's native Swansea, and offering autobiographical insights into his life from early childhood to young adulthood.
In a letter to fellow poet Vernon Watkins, Thomas claimed that he 'kept the flippant title for—as the publishers advise—money-making reasons', and made the unlikely claim that the title was not a parody of James Joyce's 1916 modernist masterpiece.
A wonderful work from the celebrated Welsh poet, best known for his radio drama 'Under Milk Wood', and the poem 'Do not go gentle into that good night'.
In the publisher's original paper wraps. Back strip and wrap perimeters age toned, with spotting to front wrap, and ink mark to rear wrap. Shelf wear to spine tail, with small chip to spine head. Light spotting to fore edge of text block. Internally, firmly bound. Light spotting to half title, title page and first few leaves, with pages otherwise bright and clean, with only the occasional spot to page perimeters.
