HEANEY, Seamus, 1939-2013 : STATION ISLAND.

HEANEY, Seamus, 1939-2013 : STATION ISLAND.

London : Faber & Faber, (1984). First edition. One of the most celebrated collections of poems of modern times – over forty poems from Heaney at the height of his powers. “Many of these poems have a tough rind as though the author knew for his purposes deferred comprehension was better than instant. Obliquity suits him. Heaney’s talent, a prodigious one, is exfoliating and augmenting here” (Richard Ellman).
Post 8vo (21cm). (124),[iv] – including integral endpapers. Original black boards, ruled and lettered in gilt; a few tiny spots to top edge, but otherwise a very good copy indeed – bright, clean and sound, in an equally unflawed dust-jacket.

SOLD

HEANEY, Seamus, 1939-2013 :  NEW SELECTED POEMS 1966-1987.

HEANEY, Seamus, 1939-2013 : NEW SELECTED POEMS 1966-1987.

First edition. A fine selection of Heaney’s work, the selection made by Heaney himself from his ten earlier collections – well over 100 poems, with notes, etc.
Demy 8vo (23cm). x,(246)pp. Original cloth, ruled and lettered in gilt; a very good, clean and sound copy in the dust-jacket, which bears a portrait by Louis le Brocquy – the jacket with just a hint of rubbing to the extremities, but also very good.
