The original stapled booklet in plain white thin card covers and a pale blue dust-jacket, titled in black to the front d/j cover. Second impression March 1952. The jacket is, as usual, lightly discoloured to the extremities with some light marks to the covers. Some tiny nicks and a few small 'closed' tears to the edges of the d/j (all of which are now neatly repaired to the reverse of the d/j with clear archive tape) and the d/j now in a new protective clear - removable - bookfilm plastic cover and looks pretty good. NOT price-clipped - original price still showing on the inner flap. Internally some light tanning to the page edges o/w the Text block is very good with No inscriptions or markings. Second impression March 1952. (1st was January 1952) . 38 pages comprising Thirty-one poems, a few of which had appeared in magazines or on the radio. The author's second published book of poetry. Thomas' second collection received a sales boost from having been praised on BBC radio by Alan Pryce-Jones, which led to its first edition selling out very quickly after that. At the time of listing I also have his first book 'The Stones of the Field' for sale. See Images. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
