I recently acquired a copy of a copy of a limited illustrated edition (number 200) of the single poem "The Whitsun Weddings".  It was published by the Wynkyn de Worde Society in 1988.  The illustrations are by Robbie Burns, a winner of a Wynkyn de Worde Society bursary.

Here is the cover.

 

And here are the four drawings.

 

 

 

 

Aren't they lovely?   Did you see Larkin, bottom left in picture one?
