Notes

First edition, first impression, a rare first issue with the infamous Sassoon poem intact. The story of the suppression of this issue is well recorded. This work printed a poem that 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 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.
