Proof pull and first separate printing of five of Plath’s early poems, produced in anticipation of their publication in the Times Literary Supplement following her death. It seems to have been common practice to provide authors or their agents with pulls for approval before final publication. This pull was likely given to Ted Hughes because it was later sold by Alan Hancox of Cheltenham, a book dealer particularly close to Hughes who was known to sell material obtained directly from him. Included is Hancox’s original packing envelope. A unique and significant Plath item.

Proof pull. Single sheet printed on one side. Slightly creased from folding, tiny hole to center of page slightly affecting text, closed tear along crease at bottom of leaf not affecting text.
