Shore Poems and Other Verse

By Robert Rendall

Published by The Kirkwall Press, Orkney, 1957. First Edition. Scarce. Hardback with dust jacket, 8vo, 47 pages.

A very good clean first edition. Very scarce with no copies available to buy anywhere online. The dust jacket is in very good clean condition. Boards and spine are very clean. All contents present and pages very clean throughout. The front endpaper has been cut at the corner and there is the remains of a bookplate to the front endpaper. Overall a very good copy.

Robert Rendall (1898–1967) was a poet, and amateur naturalist who spent most of his life in Kirkwall, Orkney. Rendall, a man of many talents, known as a poet, and authority on shells, flowers, and marine life, has been described as an "Orcadian Renaissance man". He accidentally discovered the Broch of Gurness in 1929.
