ESTHER: A YOUNG MAN'S TRAGEDY: TOGETHER WITH THE LOVE SONNETS OF PROTEUS
by Blunt, Wilfred S.
[Boston: Copeland and Day], 1895. Small quarto. Publisher's original printed paper wrapper over boards, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Tiny tears in wrapper at tips of joints, some offset from fold-ins to endsheets, otherwise near fine. First printing in this format. One of 500 copies printed on Dutch handmade paper, from an edition of 550 published as the second volume in the publisher's "English Love Sonnet Series." The title-page, borders and 142 initials were crafted by Bertram G. Goodhue. Kraus calls for the spine imprint to be dated '1895'; this copy is dated '1896' at the base of the spine. As publication occurred on 21 December 1895, postdating would seem logical, but the variation from the bibliographic description is puzzling. KRAUS 38. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76376)
