Catalogue Note

A contemporary inscribed copy from Larkin probably to Nick Russel. Russel was a close friend of Larkin's at Oxford and part of the group known as "The Seven", as mentioned in the author's preface to Jill. In a letter to Kingsley Amis, dated 9 July 1945, Larkin states "I should like to get back to the halcyon days of the suppers in Nick's rooms".
