Love Lies Bleeding.
Oxford: Basil Blackwell,, 1891. Duodecimo. Original wrappers, titles in red to front. Split at the spine but holding, wrappers otherwise dust soiled and a little ruffled at the edges, one ink mark to front wrapper, good condition. First edition of this rare work of 90s verse, this copy with the ownership inscription of poet Laurence Binyon (1896-1943) who was a student at Oxford and won the Newdigate Prize for poetry in the same year as this book's publication. Binyon is best known for his definitive First World War remembrance poem "For the Fallen". Francis William Bourdillon (1852-1921) was an Oxford-educated poet a generation older than Binyon, and Love Lies Bleeding is one of a small few anonymously published collections which were later collected into Minuscula: Lyrics of Nature, Art, and Love (1897). Copac lists only 4 copies of this in British institutions.
