Notes

Second and enlarged edition, first printing, presentation copy, familiarly inscribed by Auden using his first name reserved for friends in the month of publication on the front free endpaper, "To Elinor Loring, with best wishes, Wystan Auden. Nov. 1933"; rarely encountered inscribed. First published in 1930, this revised edition contains seven new poems.
This copy also has nice provenance, with the bookplate of American poet Coman Leavenworth to the front pastedown. Leavenworth was a peer of Ginsberg at Columbia, and had beaten him for their class's "Poet Most Likely to Succeed Award".
