THE WIDOW IN THE BYE-STREET.
by Masefield, John
First edition of narrative poem by Masefield (1878-1967), appointed poet laureate in 1930. First appeared in The English Review, February 1912, according the poet's comments on the colophon page. Letter, dated 7 Jan. 1912, from Masefield to unidentified recipient, probably the publisher or an agent, laid in. In this letter, Masefield notes that "the word 'whore' and the exclamation 'by God' still occur, & as they are necssary for the rhyme or the measure, in most places, or very necessary for the emphasis." Masefield asked that they be left in "or indicate their nature by asterisks." He also asks to read the corrected version before "you print off." Bookseller's description also laid in. Six pages of publisher's advertisements at rear. "First Edition" gilt-stamped on slip case. Dust jacket torn at spine, along edges and stained. Pastedowns and free endpapers stained.
