Poor. No Jacket. 94 pages (complete). 'The Flaming Terrapin' was Campbell's first long poem and it was to earn him instant recognition and acclaim. This copy of the first edition of the first poem has been subjected to forgetful storage. The covers-board with cloth spine-are grubby. They have wear, scuffing, many marks. The spine is worn to the head and foot. Beyond all this the covers and the spine are firm, resolute and considerate. Inside, there is foxing throughout. The pages are generous, thick, firm, clear, eloquent and confident. fk.

Orange boards with tan cloth spine with paper label. Label is tanned, with tiny chips. VG jacketless copy, with publisher's reply postcard laid in. The noted South African poet's first book. Campbell, quite a good poet, translator, and scholar, has been neglected for some years, probably because of his right wing stances (pro-Franco; anti-Bloomsbury; practicing Catholic). He was considered by T. S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas and Edith Sitwell to have been one of the best poets of the period between the First and Second World Wars.
