Seven poems & two translations.
Hammersmith: The Doves Press 8vo (23.6 cm, 9.3"). 55, [1] pp.. 1902 Striking fine press production of these Tennyson pieces: two scenes translated from the Iliad, framing seven famous poems of his own directly inspired by Greek mythology. The text is => printed with the press's trademark elegant simplicity in black and red, in the legendary Doves Type, with the translations entirely in red and Tennyson's own works in black with red titles. The printing was done by T.J. Cobden-Sanderson and Emery Walker at the Doves Press, with Lord Tennyson's permission. This is => one of 325 copies printed on paper, another 25 having been produced on vellum. Publisher's vellum, spine with gilt-stamped author's name; spine and edges slightly darkened. Pages gently cockled, otherwise clean and crisp. => A very nice copy.
