Seller ID: 1367
Burnham-on-Crouch: Plow Poems, 1951. First edition (8 pp., pamphlet). Octavo (21cm), wraps; title page with Big Dipper. A poem composed on the occasion of the loss of HMS Affray 16 April 1951 as a memorial to all lost submariners. The Irish poet Ewart Milne (1903- 1987) was among the writers in the generation which followed W. B. Yeats and served with the international Spanish Medical Aid during that country's civil war; he gradually divested himself of his early communist idealism and, as with many writers and intellectuals of his time, took on conservative views. A good bibliography together with a brief biographical sketch can be found on the Princess Grace Irish Library site (pgil-eirdata.org). Covers lightly and unevenly tanned, top left corner with small (3cm) krinkle. A clean, bright copy. Scarce.
