Some uncollected early poems by F. X. Enderby.
The poems that follow have not, for some reason, appeared in any of the published volumes of Enderby's verse, and the last poem has not previously been published at all. The poems beginning "Anciently the man who showed…", "They fear and hate the Donne and Dante in him…" and "Semitic violins, by the wailing wall…", allegedly from Enderby's juvenile productions, cannot be traced either in published or manuscript form. It may be of interest to note, however, that the catalogue of the ill-fated Gorgon Press, which specialised in verse printed at the author's own expense, lists a volume by one A. Rawcliffe-Balls and Talk: Poems 1936. No copies of this volume have as yet come to light.
