Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper. With the author's signed, presentation inscription to the front free endpaper on the day of publication, 'for Francis Quail Seamus Heaney 9th June 1975'. Contemporary presentation copies of North are uncommon, the collection is certainly one of the poet's major achievements. The jacket - which is printed on a pale blue ground - is particularly prone to fading.

First edition, first impression, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper; 8vo; front endpapers browned as usual; publisher's blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, with the dust jacket. An exceptional copy in the rather faded dust jacket.
