William Wordsworth (selected by W. E. Williams), "Wordsworth" (The Penguin Poets, no. 2, 1943) - WW2 vintage poetry book
 
[William] Wordsworth (selected by W. E. Williams), "Wordsworth" (No. 2 in "The Penguin Poets" series; Harmondsworth and New York, Penguin Books, February 1943). Second World War vintage paperback poetry book, 160pp, measuring approximately 11 x 17.8 x 0.8cm (4.35 x 7 x 0.3in). There are advertisements for Pears Jif Shaving Stick, Fry's Chocolate, Chappie Dog Food, Cadbury's Chocolate and Cocoa, Mars Bars and Greys Cigarettes; the Chappie and Mars adverts refer to wartime shortages, the latter suggesting that each bar should be cut into slices to make it last longer!
 
No dustjacket; the cover is discoloured and creased with tearing along the front spine fold and two or three other slight tears, wear to the edges and corners and creasing to the spine; the title page bears an inscription in ink dated 1944, whilst the (thin wartime paper) pages are discoloured with tanning to the top edges, foxing and marking (especially to the end pages), foxing to the page edges and creasing to some corners, and the staples are somewhat rusty.
