Notes

First editions, first impressions, paperback issues. Dedication copies, both inscribed on the front free endpaper to the author's sister Olwyn Hughes: "For Olwyn with love Ted October 1995". Olwyn and Gerald, Hughes's brother, shared the dedication of the four Animal Poems books, with these two books being vols. II and III. 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 paperback and hardback issues of the present work were both published on the 4 September 1995. The cloth issues of the four volumes were sold as a unit in a box, but the paperback volumes were sold separately.
