Marbled endpapers. Ribbon marker. Title page in red and black lettering, with printer's device. Decorative head-, and tailpieces."From its initial reception in 1865, the poem has been recognized for its compelling, virtuosic prosody, its theological provocativeness, its exquisite relationship to Greek tragedy, and its pervasive concerns with fate, love, the treacherous-wonderful net of kinship, and with our inescapable mortalities. Together with "Poems and Ballads," published the following year, it established Swinburne as a masterful, challenging, deeply learned, often heretical and offending, and clearly untrammeled acolyte of the muses" (See Alan P. Barr: "Victorian Poetry," Vol. 51, Number 1, Spring 2013, pp. 1-13).One of 925 unnumbered copies on Van Gelder paper.Creasing mark at center of front cover. Spine slightly rubbed and faded.
