London: Jonathan Cape, 1969. First Edition. 245pp. Hardcover: NEAR FINE. Dust Wrapper: NEAR FINE. Book is square and solid, with lettering on spine retaining its brilliance; a couple of minor bumps to the front board, previous owner’s name in red pen on the free endpaper, modest spotting. Price-clipped wrapper has light wear. Selected Poems contains Cohen’s own choice from his work, ranging from lyrical love poems, to thoughtful considerations of religious and social problems. With his flowing lines and sensory images, he is equally adept at free-verse storytelling and the more traditional forms. Eclectic, searching, the voice of Leonard Cohen is at once private and universal”. From the dust wrapper.
