Verses and Sonnets.London, Ward and Downey, 1896 Stock Code: 28287
NotesFirst edition, first impression of the author's first book. Apparently part of the edition was recalled after Mrs Belloc recognized some portrait or other of aspects of her life in some of the verse. This book is not rare in any absolute sense but copies as nice as this one turn up perhaps once a decade at most.
Duodecimo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmd. With the original unprinted tissue dust jacket.
A little browning to the endpapers but a fine copy. The tissue jacket is has some minor loss at the head of the spine panel.
