Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy to the author's sister Olwyn Hughes, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To Olwyn with love from Ted April 1st, 1961". The inscription precedes the publication of the book, Hughes's first book of children's verse, by six days. 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.
