The debate and stryfe betwene Somer and Wynter; a poetical dialogue, from the unique copy printed by Laurence Andrew early in the sixteenth century.
Printed for the editor [colophon: by Whittingham & Wilkins, at the Chiswick Press], 1860. An "exceedingly curious early poetical dialogue" between personified summer and winter, edited by noted Shakespearean scholar, son-in-law to bibliomaniac Sir Thomas Phillipps, and history of science collector James Halliwell-Phillipps, who speculates that "some dialogue, such as the present one, suggested to Shakespeare the conclusion of his drama 'Love's Labour's Lost'." This is the first appearance of Halliwell-Phillipps's edition; the production was => limited to 30 copies and is neatly printed. Provenance: Pencilled signature of prominent Bostonian book collector Henry Gardner Denny on half-title margin; pencilled collation note at rear from the Quaritch firm; later rubber-stamp reading "F.S.H. Dupl." at back. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.
