What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding
The first edition of Victorian era poet, playwright and novelist Algernon Charles Swinburne's mid nineteenth century tragic poem, in the original cloth binding designed by Swinburne's friend, Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
An excellent example of the Victorian 'Greek' tragedy, a genre of poetry inspired by the forms, contents, and styles of Attic tragedy, drawing on the rhymes and metres of Ancient Greek literature.
With the armorial bookplate of T. M. Bruce Gardyne to the front pastedown.
A lovely copy of a lesser known work from a celebrated member of the Decadent and pre-Raphaelite movements.
In the publisher's original cloth binding with gilt detailing. Bumping to back strip head and tail, with spine lightly age toned, and handling marks to boards. Small light tide marks and light spotting to boards. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Internally, generally firmly bound. One gathering - leaves B to B4 - working loose. Pages generally clean and bright, with the odd light spot.
