Notes

Second edition of the author's famous retelling of the Greek myth, inscribed by the him on the front flyleaf: "Robert Bridges / Chilswell / Nov. 1916". In 1907 Bridges used the money left to him by his father-in-law, architect Alfred Waterhouse, to build a house in the Oxfordshire hamlet of Chiswell, where he would live until his death in 1930 after a long illness (ODNB). Eros and Psyche was first published by George Bell and Sons in 1885.
