The Iain Sinclair book mentions David Gascoyne's poetry collection The Vagrant, so I dug that out and had forgotten I had a first edition. Lovely Keith Vaughan jacket. Worth nothing: such is poetic reputation. The title poem and "The Sacred Hearth" are worth a few reads.
Also Gautier, The Grotesques, his essays on forgotten French poets and (very good) on the unforgotten Villon. Old edition but never read, so cutting the pages as I go.
