Trade paperback. 315 pages. Edited and selected by Edward Mendelson. First edition thus, first printing with full number line. “This edition of W.H. Auden’s “Selected poems” presents the original versions of many poems which Auden revised to conform to his evolving political and literary attitudes later in his career.” [from read cover]. No previous ownership marks. No spine crease. Very mild toning to page edges as per usual with this edition. One leaf shows slight wrinkling from moisture, most likely from the printing process and bound in, as to adjacent leaves show no evidence of exposure. A clean, tight, and unmarked copy. Near very good.
