Printed in red and black. Front pastedown with bookplate of C. S. Ascherson (see below), dated 1902 in pencil.

This is the luminous vellum printing of the fourth publication of the Doves Press, gathering a number of poems by Tennyson written at various times in his long life, all of them reflecting his abiding interest in Homer and Greek myth. In contrast to Kelmscott Press founder William Morris' proclivity toward the Baroque, Thomas J. Cobden-Sanderson, the Doves Press founder (along with Emery Walker), demonstrated that printing with plain type (designed by Walker) that is well set and with… Read More

Description:
London: Philip Lee Warner, publisher to the Medici Society,, 1914. One of twelve copies printed on vellum First Riccardi Press edition, number 11 of 12 copies printed on vellum from a total edition of 1,012 copies. This copy retains the publisher's advertisement slip loosely laid in. First issued publicly in 1850, this famous elegiac poem is a tribute to Tennyson's college friend, Arthur Henry Hallam (1811-33), son of the historian Henry Hallam. Tennyson's first verses had been published before he was 20, but after Hallam's death he published nothing for nine years, although all the while he was working on this poem, the product of protracted meditation. Written in rhyming quatrains, the poem moves from grief and doubt to certainty that the universe is purposeful. It achieved sensational popularity and struck a deep note of resonance with Victorian readers. The vellum issue of this edition is a fine example of the craftsmanship of the Riccardi Press, issued in a year that Tennyson's poem would find… Read More

London: Henry S. King and Co, 1875. First edition of the first book in Tennyson's historical trilogy. Small octavo, original green cloth with gilt titles to the spine. Association copy, inscribed by the author to his son on the title page, "Hallam from A."

His Tennyson: a Memoir was published in 1897 and he bequeathed many of his father's notebooks to Trinity College in 1924. A significant association copy. Regarded as the chief representative of the Victorian age of poetry, English poet and dramatist, Alfred Lord Tennyson succeeded William Wordsworth as Poet Laureate in 1850. In addition to his major works of poetry, Tennyson wrote several plays, among them his dramas Queen Mary, Harold, The Cup, and The Falcon.

Description:
(Hammersmith): Kelmscott Press, 1894. Burne-Jones, Edward. Bifolium sheet printed on both sides.(4)pp. One of 250 copies. The initial full-page woodcut illustration by Edward Burne-Jones first appeared in John Ruskin's The Dream of John Ball, and depicts, with suitable romance and foreboding, Adam and Eve after their expulsion from Eden. Both clothed in hides, Adam digs into the ground while Eve begins her spinning; about her legs are a young Cain and Abel. The rest of the pamphlet evinces William Morris' handiwork, with ten-line and six-line initials, vinous borders, and his printer's mark. Morris produced the edition for the Ancoats Brotherhood, a Manchester socialist society aimed at bringing art and literature to the area and to improve conditions for the working classes. The work's chosen poems by Tennyson and prose by Ruskin reflect these egalitarian values, calling for prioritization of humanity over earthly gain, and espousing the inherent goodness and Godliness of all people.

Description:
1937. Softcover. Fine. A collection of 104 original artworks (85 hand-painted color illustrations and 19 woodcut prints) on fine paper sheets ranging in size from about 4 ½" x 7" to 8" x 12". Most measure about 6" x 8". All are in fine condition, neatly laid-in plastic sleeves in four later vintage albums. The designs are notable for their striking portraits of figures from literature with distinctive quadrilateral eyes, and for their layering of dark colors, often with gold and silver, which gives them a three-dimensional and jewel-like luminosity similar to Persian miniature paintings. Most are signed with the monogram "AM" in paint or pencil, and we know from provenance that the artist went by the name Anne Marie. We have reason to believe her full name may have been Anne Marie Bonnet and that at least some of her work was commissioned by the publisher Ben Abramson, although we have been unable to discover any further information. Approximately half of the works in this collection are neatly… Read More

Description:
London: for W. Simpkin and R. Marshall, and J. and J. Jackson,, 1827. Very handsomely bound First edition, small paper issue, of Tennyson's first book of poems, published anonymously. Despite the title, there were in fact three brothers involved in the writing of the book, which included poems by Alfred, Charles, and Frederick. The publishers paid the authors 20 pounds for the copyright, a surprisingly large sum for unknown authors, obviously convinced of its merit. The work was issued simultaneously in large paper for 7s and small paper for 5s. Octavo (165 x 110 mm). Finely bound in late 19th-century red crushed morocco, spine with five raised bands, green morocco labels to second and third compartments, remaining compartments richly gilt with intricate flower and leaf tools, dots, and circlets, covers with foliate sprigs to corners enclosed within tools repeated from spine compartments, single gilt fillet border to covers, turn-ins with twin gilt rules to either side enclosing flower tools, blue… Read More
