Item Details

Poems. Selected and Edited by Gordon Bottomley, with an Introductory Memoir by Laurence Binyon.

London: William Heinemann, 1922. First edition. One of 500 copies printed. The first collected edition of Rosenberg's work, preceded by several rare pamphlets published prior to his death at the front in World War I. Rosenberg was one of the great literary losses of the Great War, along with Wilfred Owen and Edward Thomas, although, had he survived, he might have proved to be an even greater painter. His poems "Break of Day in the Trenches", "Louse Hunting" and "Dead Man's Dump", which are collected here, are classics of the literature of war. A fine copy in dust jacket which is very slightly rubbed. 8vo, frontispiece portrait, original black cloth with printed label on the spine, dust jacket.

Price: $1,000.00
