Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy from the author to his sister Olwyn Hughes, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To Olwyn with lots of love from Ted 21 Sept 70". 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. The book is one of 2,000 hardback copies, with 3,000 paperback copies issued simultaneously.
