Notes

First edition, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the author to his sister on the front free endpaper, "To Olwyn with lots of love from Ted 27 Oct 76". 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 is from the library of Frieda Hughes, daughter of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, though unmarked as such.
