THE DANCERS INHERIT THE PARTY.

Ventura & Worcester: Migrant Press, second edition, 1962 (first published November 1960). Illustrated green wrps., stapled, 36pp. Mimeographed text printing 35 poems with lino-cut illustrations by Zeljko Kujundzik (this edition has a different woodcut as frontispiece). The second edition of the author's second book, and his first poetry collection.


This copy briefly inscribed on the dedication page by Stuart Montgomery - "love Stuart"; the word 'Migrant' on the title page has also been crossed out. Montgomery's Fulcrum Press later published a new edition in hardcover which led to a bitter dispute with Finlay (see item #4), making the copy here a historically charged artifact. A few stray spots to slightly corner-creased wrappers, o/w Very Good. 300 copies printed. (Murray 3.2).


Accompanied by the publisher's original announcement for the book, stapled together with a contemporary printed essay by Migrant Press contributing editor, Michael Shayer (2pp.), and 'Migrant Press: bibliographical history', a folding card printed by the Migrant Press outlining their history and details of their publications to date (1965).
