Poems. Selected and Arranged by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson.
Hammersmith: The Doves Press,, 1914. Octavo. Original pinkish-brown crushed morocco by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson at the Doves Bindery, title to spine gilt, gilt compartments, single rule frame to covers gilt, all edges and turn-ins gilt. Spine slightly faded, a little dark mottling to covers, internally fresh; an excellent copy. First Doves edition, one of a limited edition of 200 copies, 12 of which were on vellum. This copy is beautifully bound by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson at the Doves Bindery with understated elegance, reflecting the restrained style typical of the Doves Press, and is signed and dated "19 C-S 14". The book and binding were made just two years before Cobden-Sanderson threw the Doves typeface into the Thames, thus concluding the bitter dispute between him and his partner Emery Walker, and bringing the era of the Doves Press to a close.
