Songs and Verses Selected from the Works of Edmund Waller
Octavo, quarter cloth with paper label; a near fine copy.
Sussex: Pear Tree Press, 1902. Edmund Waller (1606-1687) was respected for his command of language and prowess as an orator. The romantic poems featured in this rare edition are among his more sensitive works and form a pleasing contrast to the Royalist verse penned during the English Civil war. The present edition is limited to 300 copies and is printed on hand-made paper with uncut fore and bottom edges. A confident and stylised work. (Item ID: 600)
