The Library of Great Poetry
Complete Collection - 25 Leather Bound Volumes
This is a wonderful collection of poetry from the Easton Press that features beautiful leather covers that are gold gilded, silk moiré endpapers, gold gilting to the page ends, and a matching satin bookmark. The following is from the publisher:
Poetry as it was intended to be read … “Great poetry is best read in small, personal volumes that invite an intimate relationship between poet and reader—not entombed in ponderous anthologies to gather dust on a shelf. These leather-bound volumes display beautifully in your home or office and tuck neatly into a purse, attaché case, or coat pocket. Each volume embraces the immortal poetry of a master: Blake, Burns, Byron, Coleridge, Dickinson, Eliot, Frost, Poe, Shakespeare, Shelley, Tennyson, Whitman, and more.”
The following is a list of volumes in the collection:
Edgar Allan Poe
William E. Yeats
Gerard Manley Hopkins
The collection is in FINE condition with some volumes having minimal surface wear or minor marks to the gold gilted page ends. There are no bookplates or signs of previous ownership. Overall, this is an exceptional collection of poetry that is in fantastic condition.
The cost of shipping by USPS Priority Mail is included in the price.
