DE LA MARE, Walter.
The Veil and other poems.
First edition, third impression, the same year as the first; this copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to “J. Keating With best wishes from Walter De La Mare 1923”, possibly the Welsh novelist Joseph Keating (1871-1934), whose novels “combined a realistic portrayal of the industrial workplace with the conventions of the romantic genre that he believed necessary for commercial success” (ODNB).
