[7], iv-lxiii, [4], ii-xxxvii, [2], 2-453, [5]; [2], 450, [6]; [2], 440, [4] pp. Contemporary mottled calf with boards ruled in gilt, spines in seven compartments with recent black morocco labels lettered in gilt; top edges decoratively darkened. Early marbled endpapers and pastedowns. Illustrated by thirty-two folding copper plates, engraved head and tailpieces, and initials (twenty plates in volume one, seven plates in volume two, and five plates in volume three). Completing the title page: Published by Himself at London in Quarto; the Former containing the first Three Books printed in 1590, and the Latter the Six Books in 1596. To which now are added A new Life of the Author and also Glossary. Adorn'd with thirty-two Copper Plates, from the original drawings of the late W. Kent, Esq., Architect and principal Painter to His Majesty. Carpenter 115. Lowndes 2477. Oxford DNB, "Spenser, Edmund (1552?-1599)". The first edition with the William Kent engravings. The Faerie Queene is an English epic poem, concerned with knights, dragons, queens, noble ladies, Greek gods and goddesses, and warriors. The poem itself was dedicated to Queen Elisabeth I (with whom Spenser had an audience before the publication of his poem in 1590), Sir Walter Raleigh, and numerous other noble English people of the late sixteenth century. Spenser's poetic style was revolutionary to English literature: it combined classical and native English themes, motifs, and stories. Chaucer, and Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics were hugely influential to Spenser's work. The poem centers around six knights and their quests, with each knight representative of a specific virtue. Spenser's poem tackles theological and humanist issues. The Kent engravings bring Spenser's stanzas to life, in this lovely edition of a central English literary work. A Very Good set neatly rebacked with some shelf wear to the boards' edges; leaves largely clean with just a few showing light foxing. Seller Inventory # 00009431

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

About this Item: printed for J. and R. Tonson, London, 1758. Full Calf. Condition: Fine. First Edition thus. First Annotated Edition, perhaps a unique copy, illustrated (grangerized) with the full suite of 32 double-page plates by William Kent for the 1751 edition of Spenser's Faerie Queene, published by Stephen Wright and John Brindley (ESTC T35152). 4to: xlii,(68, including glossary),673,[1]; 673pp, Illustrated with 32 double-page tab-mounted copperplate engravings by William Kent. Engraved armorial bookplates of John Moore Paget (1791-1866) on front paste-downs. Laid in are various manuscipt leaves, one on stationary of the Old Vicarage, Cuckfield, now a Grade II listed building, originally built in the early 17th century, rebuilt, in Georgian style, in 1780s, and finally altered in the nineteenth century. A magnificent set, printed on heavy paper and bound in contemporary full stained calf (joints very skillfully rebuilt), spine in six compartments between raised bands, four very richly gilt, two with red and black morocco lettering pieces gilt; decorative gilt rolls on thick board edges, page edges speckled red, pages and plates pristine, crisp, fresh, and bright. Lowndes V, 2477 and III, 2477. Alston, III,101. Spenser Encyclopedia, pp. 389 (for Kent) and 706 (for Upton). Upton's edition was the first attempt at an original-spelling and an annotated text. "The extensive notes, tracing sources and identifying historical personages, are still valuable; all later annotators are indebted to Upton's erudition." (Radcliffe, Spenser and the Tradition: English Poetry 1579-1830) William Kent was a skilled designer and decorator but a poor painter and draughtsman, and despite their energy and directness, his designs for The Faerie Queene are not wholly successful (they were severely criticised by Horace Walpole, in his Anecdotes of Painting in England). But the subjects represented contain many interesting reflections of Kent's involvement with picturesque gothic architecture and garden design, including such romantic structures as the Hermitage and Merlin's Cave, a thatched, mock-gothic building housing a library for Queen Caroline at Richmond. John Moore Paget, of Cranmore Hall, Somerset, inherited from his father a "library of curious and valuable books [and] a decided taste for bibliology. A book-hunter from his youth, his constant delight in after life was to search old book-stalls, and add from time to time some scarce or quaint old work or rare engraving to his increasing collection." (Gentleman's Magazine, vol. 221, 1866). N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly.
