THOMAS, Dylan (Dylan Marlais), 1914-1953 : ADVENTURES IN THE SKIN TRADE.

THOMAS, Dylan (Dylan Marlais), 1914-1953 : ADVENTURES IN THE SKIN TRADE.

London : Putnam, (1955). First British and first separate edition : a pencilled note states this to be the first issue, without the copyright notice on the verso of the title-page – a point not mentioned by Rolph. The unfinished and partly autobiographical novel, originally published with other material a few months earlier in the USA. With a foreword by Vernon Watkins.
Crown 8vo (20cm). (116)pp. Original black boards, ruled and lettered in gilt; endpapers faintly tanned, but a very good copy in the original Gross-André dust-jacket – a design in purple, pink, black and white – a little sunned and tanned as usual, but also very good.

£125

THOMAS, Dylan (Dylan Marlais), 1914-1953 : LETTERS TO VERNON WATKINS.

THOMAS, Dylan (Dylan Marlais), 1914-1953 : LETTERS TO VERNON WATKINS.

London : J. M. Dent & Sons / Faber & Faber, (1957). First edition. An important cache of Dylan Thomas letters – “a closer commentary on [his own] poems is unlikely to emerge”. Edited and introduced by Vernon Watkins.
Demy 8vo (23cm). (146),[ii]pp. Portrait frontispiece. Original jade cloth, ruled and lettered in gilt; very good in the dust-jacket – a design in turquoise, dark red and black – slightly dulled and with minimal rubbing to extremities.
