About this Item

This collection of poems on love, nature, and poetry itself begins with biographical notes. The Renaissance "Prince of Poets," Ronsard (1524?85) was the "favorite and friend of six successive [French] kings," with patronage from queens and princesses to match. Many editions of his works appeared before 1623, and one in 1629; however none came forth again until 200 years later, when interest in 16th-century poetry was revived by Sainte-Beuve, Blanchemain, et al. This edition was designed by the great American typographer (or "typster," as he labeled himself) => Bruce Rogers, and he left his mark on its final page; it was limited to 425 copies printed at the Riverside Press in Cambridge, MA. Bound in maroon paper?covered boards with a white paper spine label printed in black, this is copy 405 and is in its original dust wrapper and with its box, being => rare thus. The spare label is tipped in at the back. Provenance: Though without indicia, from Andrew Hedden?s collection of press books and livres d'artiste. 8vo (19.2 cm, 7.6"). xxxvi, 137, [2] pp. Work of Bruce Rogers, 101. Bound and in its box as above; dust jacket and box label sunned, box edges rubbed. The pristine text, which can be read with enjoyment by peeping, is => unopened and uncut.
