Notes

First edition, one of 500 copies. A nice example of the presentation binding of Hardy's second volume of verse. The book was published in November 1901, and this was advertised as "a Special Edition, suitable for presentation, bound in white and gold." It is unknown how many are thus bound but it can not have been many, and examples are uncommon on the market.
