"MASTERLESS AND STILL UNTAMED POET, LEAD THE RACE YOU'VE SHAMED": SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION OF PRIVATE DRAFTS, 1955, ONE OF ONLY 100 COPIES SIGNED FOR PERSONAL FRIENDS BY LAWRENCE DURRELL

DURRELL, Lawrence. Private Drafts. Nicosia, Cyprus: Privately Printed, 1955. 16mo (2-3/4 by 3-1/2 inches), staple-bound as issued, original pictorial white paper wrappers. $600.

Signed limited first edition of this collection of poem drafts, one of 100 copies signed by Lawrence Durrell for personal friends.

Often "underrated as a poet" (ANB), Durrell nevertheless viewed himself as a poet rather than as a novelist. “To Durrell, places are poetry, especially those of the Mediterranean world which is the seedbed of his vision. But he has his own way of remembering them” (Time). This miniature booklet contains private poetry drafts, intended only for distribution to Durrell's friends. This copy is unnumbered.

Fine condition.
