Notes: Inscribed by the publisher, David Wishart, on the half-title, 'for Ken' - i.e., Kenneth Hardacre of the Kit-Cat Press; a friendly TLs to the same is laid in. These illustrations had originally been published, sans text, by the First Edition Club in 1924; this edition allows us for the first time to see them unified with Housman's text - a 'treachery', the introduction notes, given that the author having returned the designs as ones he 'did not like at all'.
