First edition of the author’s first separately published work, one of approximately 60 copies, this copy unsigned. On 11 June 1960, Plath wrote in a letter to the publisher, Alan Anderson, “I am writing on my own behalf to say how delighted my husband and I were with the proofs of A Winter Ship. I’m sending back the one we like best, with the border round it. We thought we’d like the date, place and press in upright letters, as on the other proof, and my name deleted as I’ll write that on the inside myself, with Christmas greeting too. Would four dozen copies be too much of a burden for you?”

Single folded sheet, titles to front cover printed in black. Housed in a green card folder. A fine copy.

Bibliography: Tabor, Sylvia Plath: an analytical bibliography, p. 4.
