A Pomander of Verse
John Lane at the Bodley Head, London 1895 - Hardcover. First edition. 1 of 750 copies. Inscribed by Nesbit's cousin Paris Nesbit (1852-1927) in 1907. Paris Nesbit was a prominent Australian lawyer, judge, embezzeler, and general "character" of his time. He was committed to mental asylums at various times in his life. Edith Nesbit (1858-1924) was a prolific and popular writer in many genres. She is best known for her books about and for children, but she considered poetry as most important. She was also a follower of Willaim Morris and a founder of the Fabian Society. Bound in tan boards with gilt cover design by Laurence Housman, who also did the charming illustration for the title page. Very good with bumping to board corners and chipping to spine edges. Interior is clean with slight aging to margins of untrimmed pages. 88 pages plus 16 pages of ads. POE/030608. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
