Louise Imogen Guiney
Nine Sonnets Written at Oxford
[Privately printed], 1895. [20] pp., first and final leaves blank; 12mo, partially unopened; uncut; original sewn printed grey-blue wrappers. Boston poet, essayist and critic Louise Imogen Guiney (1861-1920) produced six volumes of verse and eight of prose between 1884 and 1909. Her poetry has been characterized as lyrical and having an Old English, seventeenth-century style, and she has been called "one of the few truly great American poets of the past generation" (The Literary Review, January 15, 1921). Nine Sonnets Written at Oxford was privately printed for Guiney and Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue (who did the decorations for this work) and their friends, and for Herbert Copeland and F. H. Day and their friends, for Christmas 1895. Three of the sonnets appeared earlier in the Atlantic Monthly (December 1891). Rare. "A Happy New Year!" notation in a contemporary hand on the front blank. A very good, well-preserved copy, with minor chipping to wrapper foredge, short split at lower wrapper hinge, light age-toning around the wrapper edges; text pages fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
