Product description

Harold Morland, "The Heart of a Lion" (1962) - vintage poetry book - an epic poem about King Richard I (Richard the Lionheart) (SOLD)
 
Harold Morland, "The Heart of a Lion" (Lowestoft, Scorpion Press, 1962). Vintage hardback poetry book, 46pp, measuring approximately 14.5 x 22.2 x 1cm (5.7 x 8.75 x 0.4in). An epic poem about King Richard I (Richard the Lionheart), which was "written in reaction against a certain drab timidity and lack of colour and exuberance. But as well as the vigorous richness of Richard's passion for pageantry Harold Morland has also woven into his poem the feelings of the people, the onlookers who stood amongst the crowd or shouted from windows as the coronation procession passed."
 
The dustjacket has been affected by damp and is worn, marked, stained and discoloured in places with some disintegration around the edges and folds, whilst the cloth board cover is marked and much faded in places with slight disintegration to the cloth at the edge in places; there is some yellowing to the pages together with a few marks, whilst the page edges, endpapers and end pages are marked and browned.
