Youth.London: Printed by I. Narodicsky 1915 Stock Code: 128186
First edition, sole printing, of Rosenberg's second of only three poetry pamphlets published in his lifetime. This work, containing 22 poems, was published in a run of roughly 100 copies just prior to his enlistment in the army. Rosenberg attended the Slade School and quickly became one of the most celebrated of the British war poets, before his death on the Western Front in 1918. Rosenberg's war poems, some of which were published in the Poetry Magazine in 1916, were collected and published posthumously in 1922.
Octavo, pp. 18. Original buff paper wrappers, titles to front cover in black.
Loss to spine, covers browned, loss to bottom edge of rear cover, fragments loosely inserted, light foxing to contents; a very good copy of this exceptionally fragile publication.
