This is an auction for POET TRIUMPHANT: THE LIFE AND WRITINGS OF R A K MASON (1905-1971) by Asclepius.

"R. A. K. Mason (1905-1971) beat thirty-one other applicants for the Burns Fellowship in 1962, and although the selection committee regarded him as 'the foremost living poet', he had not published a poetry book for 21 years. Mason's intention was to write short stories and prepare a biography on Rewi Alley. What actually eventuated was a fine-tuning of past poems, a fine-tuning of a number of works associated with China, the printing of a radio tribute to A. R. D. Fairburn, and a few one-act plays. His tribute to Fairburn was hand-printed in The Bibliography Room in a limited edition of 100 copies. Indebted to Mason, John Caselberg wrote his own idiosyncratic book on Mason, the 'Poet Triumphant'. Some 30 years in the making, it finally appeared in 2004."
