A later reprint of Larkin's debut collection of poems, for which he would have been paid, unlike Reginald Caton (Fortune Press), who did not pay his writers and expected them to buy certain numbers of them as well.

Originally, the collection comprised 31 items, numbered with Roman numerals. The last of these, 'The North Ship', is a set of five poems tracking a ship's northward progress. In the 1966 reissue an extra poem, 'Waiting for breakfast, while she brushed her hair' was added at the end (as here).
