The Traveller's Tale - Clifford Bax (First edn) [Poetry, AO Spare]
This is a collection of poems from a talented man of letters, who, amongst other things, was a friend of Austin Osman Spare. Together with Spare, he founded The Golden Hind, A Quarterly magazine of Art & Letter. Later in life he penned his memories of his friend (Sex in Art). His poetry shows his sense of language, his lyricism and his profound sensitivity; one can understand why he and Spare were such good friends in spite of many differences of personality and lifestyle.
