Fifty New Poems for Children.

An Anthology, Selected from Books Recently Published.

Description: FIRST EDITION, pp. 63, crown 8vo, original blue boards with illustration pasted to upper board, backstrip with printed label and a small hole towards head, the boards bowing slightly with some light fading and soiling, gently knocked at corners, edges untrimmed, ownership inscription to flyleaf, good

Publication Details: Oxford: Basil Blackwell, [1922]

Notes: An anthology drawn exclusively from Blackwell's publications, with contributions from Eleanor Farjeon, Robert Graves, Edith Sitwell, and - most notably - J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien's contribution, 'Goblin Feet', is on p. 26 and originally appeared in 'Oxford Poetry 1915' - his name is mis-spelt as 'Tolkein' throughout, a fact that needn't detract from what is a rather delightful anthology.
