Notes

First edition, limited issue, number 272 of 300 copies, of which the first 100 were signed. This copy, however, is also signed by the author on the limitation page and inscribed by him to his sister on the title page, "To Olwyn, with love from Ted". This copy is from the library of Frieda Hughes, daughter of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath, though unmarked as such.
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.
