ID: 2559
Invocation: War Poems & Others

Category: First Edition

London, Elkin Matthews. 1915.


Pre-publication galley proofs of first edition, numerous hand written corrections by the author. Many corrections are substantial, largely reflecting the published text. The son of the poet John Bowyer Buchanan Nichols, Robert Nichols was educated at Winchester College and Trinity College, Oxford. Commissioned into the Royal Field Artillery in 1914, Nichols served on the Western Front, including the Battle of Loos and the Battle of the Somme, until invalided home with shell shock in August 1916. On 11 November 1985, Nichols was among 16 Great War poets commemorated on a slate stone unveiled in Westminster Abbey's Poet's Corner. Text leaves and backstrip very fragile.
