First U.S. edition, with the errata slip laid-in. This detective story about the death of the poet laureate is a light hearted roman a clef about the literary establishment in England with Dylan Thomas and John Davenport as two of the principal characters. Not published until after Thomas' death because of remarks on Eliot and Auden. Bookplate removed from front free endpaper, else fine.
