About this Item: Folio Society, London, 2012. Hardback. Condition: Fine. Walter Crane (illustrator). First Thus. 2012 First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Paper cover of slipcase unstuck in top rear left hand corner of the slipcase. 1,712 pages in total. Book Size: 10¾" x 8½". Bound in Wassa goatskin, blocked in gold. Ribbon markers. Limited to 1,000 copies of which this is number 102. Gilded top edges. Printed on watermarked laid paper. Presented in a wooden slipcase covered in Toile Vendôme, with a sliding tray in the base for ease of use. One of the most beautiful works of the Arts and Crafts Movement - a gorgeous facsimile of a piece of publishing history. Strictly limited to 1,000 numbered copies. The sixteenth century was the golden age of English poetry. Edmund Spenser burned to create an English equivalent to Virgil's Aeneid. Instead of lauding the Caesars, he would glorify Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen. Where Virgil connected Rome to the heroic past of Troy, Spenser would forge a link between Tudor England and the mythological age of King Arthur. The result was The Faerie Queene, a rich allegory which elevated Protestant virtues through the medium of a romantic, chivalric epic. Today the power of Spenser's story and the beauty of his verse still live in 'famous memory'. Rather as Spenser himself looked to 'antique times', the Arts and Crafts movement of the late-19th century looked back nostalgically to the Middle Ages. Walter Crane, an illustrator and associate of William Morris, was inspired by Edmund Spenser. He, after all, was a quintessentially English writer, dedicated to the noble aims of justice, honour and chivalry to which Crane himself, a socialist and romantic, was also committed. He illustrated the poem so lavishly that this sumptuous edition became a legend of book production in its own right. Born in London around 1552 to a family of modest means, Edmund Spenser was educated as a poor scholar at Pembroke College, Cambridge. He managed to gain work with the government, and served in Ireland, where he met the influential court favourite and poet, Sir Walter Raleigh. His own poetry, including The Faerie Queene, was written in between his official duties and he succeeded in gaining an introduction to read his works to the Queen in 1589. The Queen was so impressed with his epic that she granted Spenser an annual pension of £50. Elizabeth's chief minister Lord Burghley is supposed to have grumbled, 'What, all this for a song!' Spenser's Irish estate was burned during an attack in 1598. He left Ireland a year later and returned to London, where he died aged 47. His coffin was interred in Westminster Abbey close to Chaucer, an indication of the immense stature he had acquired. His inscription hails: 'Prince of Poets in his tyme; whose Divine Spirrit needs noe othir witnesse then the works which he left behinde him.' Each Book tells the adventure of a different knight, representing a virtue. Prince Arthur, who is searching for the Faerie Queene, acts as a common thread through the Books, assisting the various knights in their quests. Spenser wrote to Sir Walter Raleigh describing an ambitious plan of twelve Books, and perhaps even more. He completed six, which, at a total of 35,000 lines, makes The Faerie Queene the longest poem in the English language. Such is the quality of his poetry and storytelling that it is hard to think of The Faerie Queene as unfinished, rather it presents a series of adventures as timeless as any myth or legend.

About this Item: George Allen, 1895-97, London, 1897. Hardcover. Six volumes, quarto, original light cream pictorial cloth stamped in gilt and red, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, original red on pink illustrated card covers bound in. Fore and bottom page edges tanned; light yellowing to free endpapers from binding; very light spine yellowing; soft bruise to upper inner corner of front covers; volume I has neat professional repairs to inner hinges, rear joint, and spine ends, with light darkening at ends, gilt imprint a little flaked; volume VI has one very small brown spot on the spine; volume II has a hairline crack to front inner hinge neatly repaired; a fine set otherwise, no owner names or plates, the vulnerable white cloth remarkably clean. Edition of 1000 copies on handmade paper printed by Charles Whittingham of the Chiswick Press. 88 full- page woodcut illustrations (one double-page), 132 head and tailpieces, numerous woodcut initials, uniform illustration to front covers. Edited by the eminent book colllector, bibliographer, and forger Thomas J. Wise. A very handsome production of this great classic of late 16th century English literature, an epic poem, one of the longest in the language, and still never completed. Considered by many to be Walter Crane's best work in black & white, it was his most extensive commission as a book illustrator, taking three years to complete. Note: heavy set, extra postage will be required. Seller Inventory # 43078

Original cream cloth, titles to spine gilt, titles to front cover red in decorative vignettes gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, original pink covers bound in at front. Light soiling to covers, slight foxing to endpapers and endmatter. Double page illustrated title pages, woodcut front, head and tailpieces, all by Crane. First Crane edition, limited issue, one of 1,000 copies printed on handmade paper. Crane wrote his very own Spenserian stanza on his triumphant attempt to illustrate Spenser's great poem, which appears following the general title page in volume one: "Great Spenser's noble rhyme have I essayed / To picture, striving still, as faithful squyre, / Each faerie knight to serve, in armes arrayde / 'Gainst salvage force, and deathful dragons dire, / Or Blatant Beast with poisonous tongues of fire; / To limn the Lion mylde with Una fayre, / The False Duessa, and the Warlike Mayd. / "Be Bolde," I read, and did this emprise dare, / And now the door is oped, so let the masque forth fare." A beautifully illustrated production, encompassing both an Art Nouveau and an Arts and Crafts aesthetic. Seller Inventory # 116100
