Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy to the author's sister Olwyn Hughes, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "For Olwyn much love from Ted 22nd April 77". Hughes was very close to his sister Olwyn. After Plath's suicide in 1963 Olwyn helped to bring up their children, became her brother's literary agent, established the Rainbow Press with Ted in 1971 to produce fine press editions of his works, and remained devoted to him her entire life. Loosely inserted is a folded bifolium specimen sheet for the book, lightly marked.
