About this Item

Collins (1721?59) is perhaps less well known than his contemporary Thomas Gray but was definitely an important mid-century poet and anticipator of Romanticism. This handsome volume of his poetry was "Edited with an introductory study by Edmund Blunden" and printed by The Chiswick Press in an edition of 550 copies of which => this is copy 50 of 50 special copies on Van Gelder's Japon Paper. It is signed on the colophon by Blunden. The frontispiece portrait of Collins is a reproduction of one by John Flaxman. 8vo (24 cm; 9.5"). viii, 179, [1] pp., [1] f. Publisher's quarter brick red morocco with gray paper over boards, front board with a gilt center device; small amounts of discoloration to rear board's paper and black streak to its leather. Deckle edges. Offsetting of frontispiece to title-page, attractively; slim sliver of light waterstaining to some top margins and some upper outer corners creased across in a way that may suggest an incident in the print-shop; in all a clean and very appealing copy from the Press's "special" part of this edition.
