Monograph, collector marginalia and underlinings. Excellent condition. Contains an inscription, "Dr. Robert Boyer with all good wishes from Nevill Coghill," on the front cover. Inside contains a loose sheet of paper, with, on one side the written list of questions Boyer brought to his interview of Coghill, and on the other side a transcription of the (London) Times obituary of "Mr. Herbert Howarth Critic of Yeats Joyce and Eliot". Coghill was Howarth's tutor at Oxford, as he had been Auden's ten years earlier. Howarth was the collector's (Robert H. Boyer) teacher and dissertation director at the University of Pennsylvania.
