An early edition of the Fortune Press translation, first printed in 1932 as the first English language edition of Rimbaud's Saison en Enfer. This is one of 600 copies printed, with a nice example of the dust jacket. First published in 1873, this prose poem was finished in a frenzy after the break-up of Rimbaud's relationship with Verlaine who shot him with a revolver in the summer of that year.

The 1932 first edition was also one of 600 copies only, but in a different binding and comprising 88 pages (against 78 here).
