Herrick, Robert
One Hundred and Eleven Poems
Golden Cockerel Press, London, 1955. Small quarto. 127pp. Of an edition of 550, this is one of 105 specially bound in white alum-tanned sheepskin and accompanied by eight extra plates. Signed by the illustrator at colophon. Richly illustrated with color-collotype reproductions of Flint's watercolor paintings and crayon drawings of women in various scenes of repose. Flint's illustrations highlight Herrick's poems' characteristic insistence that life is beautiful, though short, and, in Herrick's own words, one ought to "gather ye rosebuds while ye may". Spine tanned with rubbing to bands. Sleeve that houses extra plates tatty at opening, but all plates pristine. All housed in marbled cloth-covered slipcase, which shows general wear. T.e.g. Prospectus laid in. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Bromer Booksellers, Inc., ABAA [Boston, MA, U.S.A.]
