Rupert Brooke: The Collected Poems 1919 - Riccardi limited editi

1919. Philip Lee Warner, Publisher to The Medici Society. Riccardi Press limited edition of 1,000 of which this is number 719.

This is a lovely book measuring 23cm by 17cm printed by the Chiswick Press.

The first thing you notice is that this one has a dust wrapper. Quite unusual for a book to be issued with one at the time of the First World War and for it to survive in one piece. It is sunned on the spine.

The next thing I noticed was the bookplate#39;s copper etching on the inside front. It reads: POST NUBILA PHOEBUS [After Clouds, the Sun] HENRY STUART MACLEAN JACK.

The Latin proverb is nice and optimistic. The bookplate itself is admired and collected - see https://www.exlibris-collector.com/products/george-w-eve-etching-on-copper-original-1

By the time we get to the title page we will have seen a sunned front endpaper that has a neat white shadow of the bookplate. The two wood engravings on the title pages are by Gwen Raverat. The portrait of her friend, Rupert Brooke, reminds us of how young the poet looked - Yeats called him quot;The handsomest young man in Englandquot;.

All the handmade pages of this book are unmarked, untorn and unfoxed. There are a couple of printed extra labels #39;The Collected Poems of Rupert Brooke#39; tipped in at the back.

All in all, a well-preserved quality tribute to one of the best-known war poets.
