About this Item

Good+. A very scarce edition. Number 18 of 150 copies. A collection of poems by a witty if staunchly conservative writer of philosophical fiction; Mallock once declared that the purpose of his writing was to expose the fallacies of radicalism and socialism. Included here are translations from Hugo and Baudelaire, and a poem addressed to the poet "Violet Fane;" some of the pieces had appeared in an earlier volume called Poems (1880). Deckle fore edge. Top edge gilt. Bound in full cream calif with gilt titling and decoration on front and spine. Covers show wear and soiling, gilt somewhat darkened, heavy wear along fore edges and at upper corners. Engraved bookplates at front pastedown at free front endpaper; the latter if from Horace Hume Van Wort, a member of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada. Moderate toning to very edge of pages; moderate soiling at ends; otherwise interior is clean, tight, unmarked. 159 pp.] Approx. 7" x 8.75". Carefully shipped in secure parcel. Ask all questions; glad to respond. Bookseller Inventory # 502697
