“FOR WE BY CONQUEST, OF OUR SOVERAINE MIGHT… HAVE WONNE THE EMPIRE OF THE HEAVENS BRIGHT”: SPENSER’S POETICAL WORKS, HANDSOMELY BOUND

SPENSER, Edmund. The Poetical Works. London: William Pickering et al., 1825. Five volumes. 12mo, early 20th-century full green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. $1200.

Early 19th-century edition of the works of “the poet’s poet,” handsomely bound by Zaehnsdorf.

“Spenser’s influence on English poetic literature cannot be readily over-estimated… Charles Lamb bestowed on Spenser his just title when he described him as ‘the poet’s poet’ (DNB). Compiled and edited by Philip Masterman, this edition of Spenser’s verse includes his masterpieces The Faerie Queene and The Shepheards Calendar, as well as Masterman’s essay on Spenser’s life and works and a glossary of archaic terms.

Scattered light foxing. Spines uniformly toned to brown. A few minor abrasions to bindings. An about-fine set, handsomely bound.
