Collected Poems in One Volume - NOYES, Alfred

John Murray, 1965, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. DJ creased and torn at top edge of lower panel with very slight loss, still presentable mind you. Internally bright and clean. A nice, tight, copy.

This Second Edition has a Preface by the poet's son Mr Hugh Noyes and fourteen more poems are included. The famous poems, some of which The Daily Telegraph has described as standing out 'among the most conspicuous achievements of our age,' and the best-known of which is probably Tales of the Mermaid Tavern, are all included. Mr Noyes' work is distinguished by a true metrical gift, a great narrative sense, a power of imagery, and the ability to evoke the romance of the sea and of history and scientific discovery; this collection fully reveals his variety and scope. 427pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
