First edition, trade issue. According to Geoffrey Keynes’s recollections, Rupert Brooke probably read his paper, “Democracy and the Arts”, to fellow members of the Fabian Society while he was its president, in spring or summer 1910. There was also a limited edition of 240 copies printed on part-rag paper and specially bound in niger leather with marbled paper made by Douglas Cockerell & Son.

Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Photogravure portrait frontispiece. Contents toned. A very good copy in the tanned dust jacket slightly chipped at head and foot with small portion of loss to spine reinforced on verso with three strips of tape.
