[contrib. AUDEN, W.H.]

Public School Verse

London: Heinemann, 1924

Small 8vo, pp. 38. Original grey three-quarter boards, printed spine label. Offsetting to endpapers, embossed words 'PRESENTATION COPY' to top right of title page, some creasing to spine label.

First edition. One of only 500 copies, and Auden's first appearance in print.

Auden contributes Woods In Rain to this anthology, in which his name appears as 'W.H. Arden' both on the contents leaf and at the head of his poem on p. 18.

A very nice example of a book both fragile and scarce.
