The Tercentenary of Milton's Birth: Inaugural Meeting at the Theatre Burlington Gardens Tuesday, December 8, 1908 (The Eve of the Tercentenary). Lines by Mr. George Meredith, O.M., Written in Honour of the Occasion
[London]: The British Academy, [1908]. Ephemera. Good. Ephemera. One of the rarest Meredith items, appearing the year before he died. First edition of a four-page leaflet, an offprint from the Proceedings of the British Academy, with title on first page and two page poem. In her detailed catalogue of the Altschul collection of Meredith (now at Yale), Bertha Coolidge states "Professor Gollancz had a dozen copies printed off on vellum for Meredith and his friends." Only three copies printed on vellum can be located (Columbia, Yale, the Mark Samuels Lasner collection), and this appears to be the only one printed on paper - possibly a proof, considering the poor state of preservation. Small tear, browned, folds, a good copy only. LIT/120712.
