The Sensitive Plant. Introduction by Edmund Gosse. Illustrations by Charles Robinson.
4to. London: Heinemann, [1911]. 4to, (xiii) 128 pp. Frontispiece and 17 mounted color plates and many text illustrations in color. Original green cloth, richly gilt upper cover, tissue guards toned, a very good copy. First edition with these illustrations, in the publisher's luxury binding. One of the greatest of the illustrated gift books, pairing Shelley's meditation on beauty and immortality with Robinson's lush and richly colored designs. "This book... with... supplements in colour in addition to page designs by the artist is sumptuous in effect" (The International Studio, January 1912).
