Door into the Dark.  London: Faber & Faber, 1969.  First Edition, first issue.  Pp, 56.  Black cloth boards, title in gilt to spine, in publisher's dust jacket printed in green, red and cream. Light spotting & scuffing to jacket, neat ownership name to front free endpaper with top right corner clipped, otherwise a very good copy.

 Heaney's second collection of poems, preceded by his widely acclaimed 'Death of a Naturalist' published in 1966.

The poems graphically depict the author's rural upbringing, from the local forge to the banks of Lough Neagh, concluding in the preserving waters of the bogland and a look ahead to his next book, Wintering Out (1972).
