Poetry of the Second World War by Flight Lieutenant Thomas Edwin James FASSAM (1909 - 1981).
Erica Marx (1909-1969) was the owner of the Hand and Flower Press which began in 1940 by publishing limited editions of books such as Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw and Guy de Maupassant’s Caresses. Later, the press printed the work of largely unpublished writers, releasing commercial editions of fiction, translations, lectures, biography, and especially the poetry with which it is most closely identified.
