Notes

First edition, first impression, inscribed by Hughes to his sister before the publication date on the front free endpaper, "To Olwyn, 28th Jan. 64. With love, Ted". 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 collection of Frieda Hughes, daughter of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, though unmarked as such.
