Heaven's Gate and Other Poems - N. C. Raad

Jonathan Cape, 1928, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with loss at the spine ends, tips and edges and a scribble to the upper panel. Price Clipped. Previous owners' inscription (numeral 6) to the first blank. Edges of the text block lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned, heavier tanning to the blanks, and offset to two pages from a slip laid in at some point.

From the cover: “THESE poems, with a few exceptions, were composed between the years 1923 and 1928, and contain some of Mr. Raad’s most beautiful and characteristic work. In addition to the sonnet form, which was employed exclusively in Life and Love, other lyrical forms are introduced, and the collection as a whole, for variety both of subject and metre, represents, perhaps, the poet at his best. To those unacquainted with Mr. Raad’s verse, this offers as good an introduction as could be desired.”
Size: 8" x 5¾"
