Pp (2),iii-iv,1-107,(1). 8vo, grey cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The Unquiet Grave describes a year's journey through the mind of a writer who is haunted by the turbulent Mediterranean figure of Palinurus, the doomed pilot whose uneasy ghost demands to be placated. Three movements indicate with deepening intensity the 'three blustering nights' while he is adrift on the ocean, and the Epilogue examines the myth from both the historical and psychological aspects. The Unquiet Grave was first published by Horizon in a limited edition of a thousand copies. The present edition has been entirely revised and corrected." (from the dj).
