Macmillan, London, 1966. First edition. Book condition: very good. Very minor shelf wear only. A little light creasing radiating out from the binding on first few pages - looks like a binding fault rather than any subsequent problem. Very faint line of tanning to endpapers. Very small area of superficial surface damage to p13 obliterating the initial 'w' in 'wheel', in first line of the poem The Ferris Wheel. Otherwise the book is very clean and unmarked. Dust jacket condition: very good and unclipped. A little shelf wear around the edges and some chipping to the head & tail of the spine and to the corners. Slight discolouration to rear. This is Ruth Fainlight's first collection of poems. Covering a period of seventeen years, they show a preoccupation with the themes of love, solitude, death and power. the potent image of the moon; and a progressive awareness of the symbolic quality of the material world.
