HILL, Geoffrey (Sir Geoffrey William), 1932-2016 : PREGHIERE.

HILL, Geoffrey (Sir Geoffrey William), 1932-2016 : PREGHIERE.

Leeds : Northern House, (1964). First edition. Eight poems hand-set at the School of English, Leeds University. Hill’s third collection of poems.
Post 8vo (21cm). 12pp. Original white stapled wrappers, lettered in black; some very minor wear and a hint of creasing, but still a very good copy of a fragile production.

SOLD

HILL, Geoffrey (Sir Geoffrey William), 1932-2016 : MERCIAN HYMNS.

HILL, Geoffrey (Sir Geoffrey William), 1932-2016 : MERCIAN HYMNS.

London : André Deutsch, (1971). First edition : the rare hardback issue. The winner of the inaugural Whitbread Award for Poetry. A collection of thirty “prose-hymns”, all previously unpublished, with notes on King Offa, etc., and an introduction by C. H. Sisson. “These brilliantly exact verbal organizations are typical of the book: the activities of Mercia — coining, hammering, carving — are, first of all, the qualities of Mr Hill’s own poetic technique, so that style matches theme in a striking congruency” (TLS review).
Foolscap 4to (21cm). [48]pp. Original stone boards, lettered in brown; some spotting and browning of edges, endpapers and the inner flaps of the John Andrew dust-jacket, but otherwise a very good copy of a poorly produced book — the jacket complete and unworn. Loosely inserted are two contemporary press reviews.

£200

HILL, Geoffrey (Sir Geoffrey William), 1932-2016 : TENEBRAE.

HILL, Geoffrey (Sir Geoffrey William), 1932-2016 : TENEBRAE.

London : André Deutsch, (1978). First edition. A fine collection, including the Lachrimae sonnet sequence.
Demy 8vo (23cm). 48pp. Original green boards, lettered in gilt; a touch bruised; slight spine crease, but a very good copy in the dust-jacket – also very good.
