The North Ship

LARKIN, Philip (1922-1985)

London: Fortune Press, 1965. Early Reprint. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Second (unauthorized) Edition. Tall, slim 8vo: [4],36pp. Publisher's smooth maroon buckram (some copies bound in brownish-orange buckram, no priority known), spine lettered in gilt, bottom edge untrimmed; beige dust jacket (Bloomfield calls it pale orange, but to my eye there is very little, if any, orange in it) printed in black, priced 21s. Possibly run off from the same plates as the first edition, with the copyright page still reading "First Published 1945," though this edition appeared in a larger format than the original (9 1/8'' x 5 5/8'' vs. 7 1/8" x 5"). A virtually pristine, unread copy, completely free of foxing and wear, in Fine jacket. Bloomfield A1(b). Originally published, by the Fortune Press, in 1945. This pirated edition, limited to 500 copies, was issued in advance of the authorized Faber & Faber release (on Sepember 15,1966), but was swiftly withdrawn when Larkin discovered its existence. By 1972, according to Bloomfield, the publisher still had 220 copies in stock, but these had no dust jackets, which "had inadvertently been destroyed." Larkin's first major collection of [31] poems, "The North Ship is often criticised for its high-flown Yeatsian rhetoric, but it is, essentially, a wartime collection of poems and its significance lies primarily in its elegiac lyricism and withdrawn but tenacious sense of survival." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Larkin, Philip

London: The Fortune Press. Fine/No Jacket. 1965. Hard Cover. 9.125" x 5.875" First Published 1945" stated on the verso of the contents page; however, this is the 1965 unauthorised edition that was withdrawn from sale when the author discovered its existence. Tan, buckrum-covered boards with gilt lettering to the spine. (also issued bound in dark red buckram - no precedence established). 500 copies printed, some 280 copies sold with a dust jacket before sale was stopped; the remaining 220 copies did not have dust jackets. It is tempting to conjecture that this copy is one of those. No faults, about as nice a copy as you are likely to find, protected by a clear, removable cover.
