Identifier: MS167

David Gascoyne was born October 10, 1916 in Harrow, London, England. He published his first book of poetry in 1932 at the age of 16, and his subsequent publications quickly established his reputation as one of a small group of English surrealists. This collection includes greeting cards, postcards, letters, pamphlets, and various ephemera removed from books that were part of Gascoyne’s personal library, and were purchased by the Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections.
