Notes

First Blunden edition of Wilfred Owen's poems, first impression, number 23 of 160 large paper copies, and signed by Blunden on page 41 at the end of his "Memoir".

This edition was expanded by fellow war-poet Edmund Blunden (1896-1974) from the first edition of 1920 edited by Siegfried Sassoon, who of all the war poets had known Owen best, albeit briefly. Blunden's edition, produced Sassoon's co-operation, was the second overall - the 1921 printing, termed "second edition", was merely a reprint of the first.
