Door into the Dark
HEANEY, Seamus

Category: First Edition

London Faber and Faber. 1969.


First edition; 8vo; original boards and dust jacket. Inscribed by the author on the title page 'on "the day of the corncrake." 29th June 1969'. From the library of the Belfast poet John Hewitt. Hewitt's The Day of the Corncrake was published in the same year as Door into the Dark and this copy was presented to Hewitt by Heaney to commemorate what would be a significant year for both writers. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket, which is a little browned to the spine and has a small mark and a little wear to the foot.

Price £1550.00
