Poems. With: Poems: Second Series. With: Poems: Third Series
Roberts Brothers, Boston 1890 - FIRST EDITIONS, FIRST PRINTINGS. Poems: Publisher's original three-piece binding with a wavy vertical rule separating a gray cloth spine from white cloth-covered boards. Myerson's 'B' binding [no priority], with the wavy rule and the first three lines on the front cover stamped in gilt rather than silver. The spine is dull with some rubbing at the head and the foot, but with virtually no loss to the cloth. There's some soiling to the covers, and a light dampstain to the upper corner of the front board and the fore edge of the rear board, with some resultant, albeit fairly light, internal staining. The upper two inches of the front hinge is starting, and there is a tasteful previous owner bookplate on the front pastedown. Second Series: Publisher's original grayish green cloth. Top edge gilt. Myerson's Binding "B." There are a few small flecks of discoloration to the cloth on the lower spine and along the front joint, and there is a small puncture hole in the back board with a resultant pin-prick through the blank margin of the last thirty or so pages. Otherwise, this a bright and Very Good copy with very little wear. Third Series: . Publisher's original three-piece binding of white cloth-covered boards with a green cloth shelf back and a gilt-stamped rule where the two cloths meet. Myerson's A binding. All edges gilt. Complete with one white wove endpaper and one laid paper blank at both the front and back. Ink gift inscription from 1967 on the front free endpaper. Apart from some minor soiling to the cloth, and a tiny bit of foxing to the endpapers, this is a bright copy, Very Good or better. Myerson A.1.1a., A 2.1.a, and A4.1.a.
