What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Publishers' Original Binding

Preceded by the first UK edition of the same year, The Life and Death of Jason became so popular that it was revised and republished in various forms, the present copy is a second edition of the same year as true first, first US edition. 

Originally composed to be part of long epic poem The Earthly Paradise, a popular anthology telling of a medieval group of wanderers in search of immortality, this poem is a long romantic narrative that features numerous medieval and classical sources.

Condition

In the original publisher's full cloth binding. Externally generally sound with some shelf wear, bumped and chipped to extremities of spine and boards. Ownership inscription to front blank page, dated 1868. Internally, firmly bound. Pages clean with some browning, as usual with the type of paper used.
