About This Item

Maine: Thomas B. Mosher, 1909. Translated by Renaissance scholar, John Addington Symonds, Michelangelo's sonnets possess their original vigour: IX THANKS FOR A GIFT Al zucchero, alla mula The sugar, candles, and the saddled mule, Together with your cask of malvoisie, So far exceed all my necessity That Michael and not I my debt must rule. In such a glassy calm the breezes fool My sinking sails, so that amid the sea My bark hath missed her way, and seems to be A wisp of straw whirled on a weltering pool. To yield thee gift for gift and grace for grace, For food and drink and carriage to and fro, For all my need in every time and place, O my dear Lord, matched with the much I owe, All that I am were no real recompense : Paying a debt is not munificence. Fourth edition of 925 copies. Tall duodecimo, contemporary handsome polished gilt calf, marbled emdpapers ; bookplate and signature of Roy McWilliams, a little rubbed but essentially a fine copy.
