About this Item: printed by William Morris at the Kelmscott Press., Hammersmith, 1893. One of 500 copies printed on Batchelor handmade paper (5 copies were printed on vellum). Decorative woodcut title page, woodcut borders and initials by William Morris. Printed in red and black in Golden type. 8vo., original limp vellum with silk ties, spine lettered in gilt, in a later slipcase. Maud was a great money-spinner for Morris as it was specially commissioned by Macmillan & Co. who bought all 500 copies. A tragic dramatic poem. The narrator being the unnamed lover of Maud. He kills her brother in a duel and has to flee to France where he later learns that his love, Maud, has died, probably of a broken heart. The distressed poet loses his sanity and imagines he is dead. In the last part, his sanity is restored and he leaves to fight in the Crimean War. Some rubbing and dryness to the top left hand side of the lower cover and spine slightly darkened, a little offset on front free endpaper, otherwise very fresh internally and overall a good copy. Booklabel of Clarence B. Hanson, Jr. on the front pastedown. Seller Inventory # 5500

About this Item: Kelmscott Press, Hammersmith, 1893. 210 x 146 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 3/4"). 2 p.l., 69, [1] pp. ONE OF 500 COPIES ON PAPER (and five printed on vellum, not for sale). Original limp vellum, original blue-green silk ties, flat spine with titling in gilt, partially UNOPENED. (Publisher's slipcase not present.) Initial opening with elaborate woodcut title page and border around first page of text, large woodcut initials with decorative marginal extensions, printer's device at the end. Peterson A-17; Sparling 17; Tomkinson, p. 112. A VIRTUALLY PRISTINE COPY, the binding extraordinarily clean, and internally faultless. This is an outstanding copy of a particularly haunting work, in an especially lovely edition. A poem of some 1,300 lines, "Maud" originally appeared, with other verse, in 1855 in the first volume of poetry Tennyson published as Poet Laureate. The germ of the poem was a lyric entitled "Oh! That 'twere Possible," composed more than 20 years earlier, in 1833-34, soon after the devastating passing of the poet's close friend Arthur Hallam. Extremely emotional, the poem deals with the hopeless yearning to make contact with the dead. With some alterations and additions, "Possible" became lines 141-238 in the second section of "Maud." Sparling notes that the borders here were designed specifically for this book (though they were used once more later on), and he calls the woodcut title page, the first such for a Kelmscott octavo, "one of Morris' loveliest." Although Kelmscott books can still be found in very fine condition, the present copy is simply sparkling, and a cut above even one's most sanguine expectations.
