THOMAS, R.S.

The Bright Field/Das Helle Feld

Munich: Babel, 1983



8vo, pp. 20. White pamphlet, lettered in black to front and rear panels, stapled in to unprinted dark blue oversized wrappers. Slight discoloration to outer margins of wrappers, otherwise a near fine copy.



First edition. No. 126 of 200 copies, '...printed on the occasion of the reading, recital and exhibition DAS HELLE FELD at the British Council in Munich 21st Nov. 1983'.

The pamphlet comprises a printing in both English and German of Thomas' poem The Bright Field, from the 1975 collection Laboratories Of The Spirit; an abstract illustration by Kevin Perryman (who also provides the German translation of the poem); and music for flute solo by Wolfgang Niemeyer to accompany this and other poems by Thomas.

An eight-page version of this pamphlet was published in 1986 in an edition of 50 copies, signed by the poet. Both versions are scarce; this seems scarcer.
