Item Description: London - Collins, 1944. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. First edition. Publisher's cloth covered boards with rare gold lettering to spine. A first edition. Edmund Charles Blunden, MC (November 1, 1896 - January 20, 1974), was an important and influential poet, author and critic. It was after the war that Blunden began his long-standing friendship with Siegfried Sassoon, who came from the same part of England and whose interests in country pursuits he shared. In 1922, Blunden was awarded the prestigious Hawthornden Prize for Poetry. Although he wrote war poems, he avoided the graphic edge that characterises the work of Sassoon or Wilfred Owen, and his memoirs of war service, though beautifully written, have been argued to have lacked the immediacy of those of Sassoon or Robert Graves. Cricket Country (1944) reflects Blunden's abiding passion for the game. Condition: The binding is firm, and both covers are attached. There is some wear to the dust jacket at the top of the spine where tears evident. Corner of jacket has been clipped. Internally the book is clean and bright apart foxing inside the dust jacket. There are two prices (one in ink) on the inside front page (top right corner). This book is being sold from my personal collection to raise money for our grand-daughter who has developmental coordination disorder. Please click here to ask a question
