The Dyer's Hand

London: Faber, 1963

8vo, pp. 527. Original blue-green boards, lettered in gilt to spine. A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper with edgewear and light chipping to head of spine.

First UK edition, preceded by the US edition which appeared three months earlier.

A collection of Auden's lectures given while he was Professor of Poetry at Oxford between 1956 and 1961 (not a bad achievement for someone who graduated from there with a third class degree).
