Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy from the author to his sister Olwyn Hughes, inscribed on the front free endpaper within a hand-drawn heart: "For Olwyn love Ted 22nd Sept 93". 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.
