THE FAERIE QUEENE. DISPOSED INTO TWELVE BOOKES FASHIONING XII MORALL VERTUES (FAERIE QUEEN)
Oxford: Limited Editions Club, 1953. Hardcover. Small university bookplate on each front pastedown. The spines of the dustwrappers have just a touch of the sunning and none of the foxing on the panels usually found with this title. The slipcase is near pristine. Fine in close to Fine dustwrappers and a Fine slipcase. Agnes Miller Parker. Two large quarto volumes (7-3/4" x 11-3/4") bound in gilt-decorated green cloth and illustrated with pen decorations by John Austen and wood engravings by Agnes Miller Parker. Copy #1185 of 1500 SIGNED by Parker on the colophon page. A nicely printed set retaining Spenser's original English and beautifully illustrated. The uncommon dustwrappers are present as is the slipcase. A lovely set of this, one of the underrated books of the press. Monthly Letter laid in.
