The Shorter Poems.Oxford, The Daniel Press, 1894 Stock Code: 118717
NotesFirst complete edition, limited issue, including the first printing of any of the final volume; one of 150 numbered sets, the vast majority of which were either issued bound as one or suffered the same fate after purchase. Sets in their original state are rare, only one such example appearing at auction in 30 years. With the original prospectus laid-in. Robert Bridges (1844-1930) would become Poet Laureate in 1913, and became friends at Oxford with Gerard Manley Hopkins.
5 volumes and index, small quarto. Original wrappers, short title to each front wrapper in black. Housed in a green cloth drop-down box, red morocco title label to spine gilt.
Some spotting and dust soiling, and superficial fraying to the yapp edges, but on the whole a sound set of this fragile issue in excellent condition.
