"Every detail of this book's design is my own"

First Flint edition, signed limited issue, number 82 of 105 copies signed by the artist and in the deluxe sheepskin binding, together with the additional suite of eight sepia plates, here retained in the original envelope. There were also 445 copies bound in parchment and cloth boards.

William Russell Flint not only illustrated the present edition, but selected and arranged the poems, and printed them at his own expense. He describes in his "Note on Herrick" how "every detail of this book's design is my own... with good spirit and good care I have made the drawings and placed them with their poems". The result is a very attractive production which brings out, in Flint's words, the "prettiness blossomed into beauty" of Herrick's poems.
