About this Item: George Allen, London, 1897. Hardcover. Condition: g to vg. Limited edition. 1/1000.

The Faerie Queene is an English epic poem by Edmund Spenser. "Books I to III were first published in 1590, and then republished in 1596 together with books IV to VI. The Faerie Queene is notable for its form: it is one of the longest poems in the English language and the origin of a verse form that came to be known as Spenserian stanza. On a literal level, the poem follows several knights in an examination of several virtues, though it is primarily an allegorical work, and can be read on several levels of allegory, including as praise (or, later, criticism) of Queen Elizabeth I. In Spenser's "Letter of the Authors" he states that the entire epic poem is "cloudily enwrapped in Allegorical devises," and that the aim of publishing The Faerie Queene was to "fashion a gentleman or noble person in vertuous and gentle discipline". The Faerie Queene found such favor with Elizabeth I that Spenser was granted a pension for life amounting to 50 a year, though there is no further evidence that Elizabeth read any of the poem. This royal patronage helped the poem to such a level of success that it became Spenser's defining work." (For more information, see: David Loewenstein and Janel M. Mueller's "The Cambridge History of Early Modern English Literature," 2003, Cambridge University Press). One of the most beautiful works of the Arts and Crafts Movement, "Faerie Queene" contains no less than 88 full-page illustrations, 135 illustrated head- and tailpieces, and numerous illustrated initials by Walter Crane (1845-1915), an English artist and illustrator considered to be the most influential, and among the most prolific, children's book creators of his generation. One of 1,000 unnumbered sets on handmade paper. Sporadic and moderate rubbing along edges of bindings. First volume lacking the first two leaves of the Editor's Preface. Upper corner of pages 403 to 492 in second volume creased / bumped (not affecting lettering). Bindings in overall good to very good, interior in good+ to very good condition.

About this Item: George Allen, London, 1897. Decorative Cloth. Condition: Very Good. Walter Crane (illustrator). 1st Edition. A very good set of the special limited edition of 1000 copies, printed at the Chiswick Press by Charles Whittingham on hand-made paper, and illustrated with complex designs and images by Walter Crane. Published in parts over 3 years from 1894 - 6, this was a huge undertaking and is judged to be one of Crane's best works. Complete in 6 volumes in the original cream coloured cloth with gilt designs and red titles to front board, gilt titles to spine, and red design to back board. Top edges gilt, remainder untrimmed. Each volume has the original rose-coloured part wrap bound in at the beginning and end. The bindings are in very good clean condition with the occasional very light mark. The bottom edges are occasionally darkened, particularly at the corners and spine end. Vol I has a light bump to the top edge of the back board close to the spine. Internally the contents are in very good to near fine clean condition with just the occasional small spot or mark. Pages tend to darken slightly at the untrimmed edges. All the endpapers have light spotting and there is a very small damaged area to the front endpaper joint of Vol III. Vols II and III have a very light speckle in the paper in some sections. Vol IV has a brown mark at the page edge of pp 871-4 and circa 900-907, 944-6. Vol V has a small paper flaw in the rear pastedown endpaper. The collation is complicated and the set is substantial - please enquire if you would like further details and additional images to the 5 that are posted with the book. Seller Inventory # 032714
