First edition, first printing. Original burgundy paper-covered boards lettered in gilt to the spine, in the dustwrapper designed by Shona Andrew. A fine copy, presenting as unread, the binding square and firm, the contents bright and clean throughout. In the equally fine unclipped dustwrapper (35.00 to the front flap). A lovely copy.

A generous selection of MacNeice's Letters, addressed to an extraordinary roster of recipients including T. S. Eliot, W. H. Auden, Anthony Blunt among many others. "A valuable supplement to the poetry, and to his autobiography 'The Strings Are False', the letters help recreate an era: Oxford in the 1920s [...], London and New York in the 1930s, neutral Ireland, the Blitz [...]. The apparatus is generally sound, and even the Gaelic names are right, which is truly exceptional." (Derek Mahon in the 'Literary Review', June 2010)
