    Dylan Thomas's Son's Penmanship Book, 24 pp., 7" x 6.25", ca. 1950s. This primary school workbook belonged to Colm Thomas (b. 1949), the second son of Dylan and Caitlin Thomas. The book's front cover is inscribed "Colm" while the inside has repetitious letter-drawing exercises. Of particular interest is a page in which the young scribe wrote his father's name four times. Worn as expected from actual grade school use. Very good condition. Since Colm was only four years old when his father died, it is most likely that this book was penned after 1953.
