The Glass Tower - Lucien Freud's rare first illustrated work.
A truly scarce first edition.
Lucien Freud was 22 when he illustrated the poems of Nicholas Moore for The Glass Tower - It was his first illustrated book, with The Equilibriad (1948) being the second and last.
Freud's drawings are of the natural world, animals and landscapes, and they reflect the symbolic and hallucinatory nature of Moore's poetry and alos offer a glimpse into his early style.
First edition, first impression. A near-fine copy in a like dustjacket. In true collectors condition.
