About this Item

miniature, 6 x 4.2 cm. full leather with gilt lettering on front cover. 45+(1) pages. Printed in an edition limited to 1000 copies (Bradbury, St. Onge 17). Bound by Proost and Brandt, Amsterdam and printed letterpress by Enschede. Originally published in 1751, the Elegy was immediately popular and still remains one of the best known English lyric poems. The ode to a humble grave employed a high form of poetry, the elegy in classical diction. In it, Gray mourned the death of all men, including the poet. Though Thomas Gray (1716-1771) did not produce a hefty corpus, he was a dominant poetic figure in the eighteenth century and is considered a precursor to the Romantic movement. Frontispiece portrait of Gray. Printed in olive, as are the four illustrations in the text. Stain on spine extending to back cover. full leather with gilt lettering on front cover.
