Poems.London, Duckworth, 1931 Stock Code: 104594
NotesFirst edition, first impression, of this collection of 14 poems parodying the work of Humbert Wolfe, who had irritated Sassoon for various reasons. Pinchbeck was a cheap alloy used for Victorian brooches; the pseudonym therefore suggested a fake poet. The book was published on 15 May 1931 in an edition of 1,000 copies.
Octavo. Original black paper over boards, titles to front cover in green.
Discreet ownership inscription to front pastedown. A very few tiny marks to rear board, but an excellent copy, somewhat lightly spotted within.
