Notes

First edition, first impression, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Olwyn, lots of love from Ted Feb. 1978". 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. This copy comes from the library of Frieda Hughes, daughter of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, though unmarked as such.
