Notes

First editions, first impressions, of these three early Ackroyd publications.
The Works is Ackroyd's first appearance in print, Ouch is his first solo publication, and London Lickpenny, one of 500 copies only, was his second solo publication. All three works come from the library of Martin S. Golding, librarian and director of English studies at Peterhouse College, Cambridge, with his contemporary ink ownership inscription to the front free endpaper of London Lickpenny, and a couple of corrections pencilled on the last page. Golding has laid in a clipping from the 19 January 1974 Spectator by fellow Cambridge professor, Jeremy H. Prynne, Director of English Studies at Gonville and Caius College, reviewing four poem collections recently published, including London Lickpenny.
