Price: $200.00


4pp. ads + 252pp. Original blue publisher's boards with printed spine label. Nicely engraved frontispiece of the poet, executed by H. Robinson. Very nice copper plate engraving of the Aldus printing device on the title page (in spite of offsetting from the frontispiece engraving). This is #6 in the series, "The Aldine Edition of the British Poets." OCLC Worldcat locates only one copy of this edition, that being in the National Library of Australia. Quite scarce in the original publisher's boards and with the printed spine label in legible condition (most are rebound in leather). Corners bumped, bottom corners rubbed through at the tips. Bookplate to the front pastedown. Ownership notations to the back pastedown (two lines). Some foxing to the prelims. Scuff marks to the front board. Some shallow chipping to the spine ends. Size: 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall
