Notes

First edition, first impression, first issue with the infamous Sassoon poem intact. The story of the suppression of this issue is well recorded. The work printed a poem Sassoon had written to Graves in letter form. Sassoon was horrified and demanded the recall of the edition and the excision of the offending pages. This request was done and a second issue produced with asterisks marking where the passages had been. Ironically these honest, fearful and touching lines are some of the best Sassoon ever wrote.
