Worcester, England: Migrant Press, 1960
35 pp., square 8vo. Mimeograph pages saddle-stapled into illustrated wrappers.  “A Migrant pamphlet.” With two woodcuts by Zeljko Kujundzic (front-cover illustration, and one tipped-in sheet).

Pages evenly age-toned, with very faint spots of discoloration from glue used for tipped-in woodcut and at edges of a few pages; still a very nicely preserved copy in clean, bright covers with mild edge creases and small spots to back.

Finlay’s scarce second book, and first book of poems, published by Gael Turnbull and Michael Shayer’s crucial imprint (which very likely helped inspire Finlay’s own publishing ventures, begun soon after).

Seemingly a review copy, with mimeographed promotional pamphlet laid in (stapled and folded once), featuring a two-page note on the book by  Shayer, biographical notes on the poet and the artist, and contact information for the press.
