HEANEY, Seamus

Land

London: Poem of the Month Club, 1970

Single sheet broadside, 11" x 15".

One of 1000 copies SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.

Founded in 1970 by Jack H. Clark and Winston Fletcher, the Poem of the Month Club sought to publish new work by leading poets, work which was to be signed by the authors and presented on high-quality materials suitable for display. Roy Fuller and C. Day-Lewis acted as recruiting sergeants for the enterprise (and were also part of the roster themselves), and the print run for each poem was 1000 copies.

A lovely example.
