The scarce hardback issue of Boland's controversial fifth book of poetry, published in an unspecified limited issue.
"In 1980 the Irish poet Eavan Boland published In Her Own Image a volume of poetry which stands as a landmark in her career as a writer for its subversive potential to revise creational myths that have contributed to the traditional construction of female subjectivity."
