Seamus Heaney, Opened Ground: Poems 1966-1996 (London: Faber and Faber, 1998)

SIGNED FIRST EDITION


This is a signed first edition of the 1996 authoritative gathering of Seamus Heaney's poems. It embraces everything Heaney wishes to preserve from his debut book Death of a Naturalist up to and including poems from The Spirit Level and his Nobel acceptance speech, Crediting Poetry. It has the '2 4 6 8 10 9 7 5 3 1' line on the copyright page signifying that it is a first impression; and Seamus Heaney's signature in black ink is on the title page directly underneath the title.

It is a fine hardcover book (xiii, 478pp), 8.5 x 5.5 inches. The dustwrapper has only the lightest degree of shelfwear and is not price-clipped.

The Nobel committee awarded Heaney his prize 'for works of lyrical beauty and ethical depth, which exalt everyday miracles and the living past'.
