More Information
Rupert Brooke, 1887 - 1915, lost his life, blood poisoning, on a troop ship. Although he was already published his greatest fame came posthumously. He is best known for his work The Soldier and its famous opening lines, frankly these, in our opinion, should be enough to secure his legacy.
If I should die, think only this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England.
Needless to say, he is very collectable with his earliest work going for considerable sums. Most of the work saw no American release so we have confined the bibliography to only English first editions.
Some critics have said his fame and renown extends his canon of work, we believe this, whilst not dismissing it, to be somewhat churlish. His words, few though they may be, have defined a part of history for many people.
If you are looking to buy or sell books then our antiquarian booksellers section may be of some assistance.
