POEMS OF JOHN KEATS

First edition thus. Two volumes. Publisher's original light blue cloth with pictorial gilt decoration to the upper board and decorative gilt titles to the spine. Top edge gilt, the others untrimmed. Black and white portrait frontispiece to the first volume. Attractive Art Nouveau pictorial bookplates for Emma Catharine Rickards dated 1905 to the front pastedown of each volume. A very good set, the bindings square and firm with a touch of fading to the spines and a little pushing to the spine ends. The contents with a very minor split to the paper covering the head of the front hinge and some light scattered foxing to the preliminary pages are otherwise in very good order and clean throughout. A unusually good set.

An attractive fin de siècle edition of Keats' poems, with an introduction by the later Poet Laureate Robert Bridges. Part of the publisher's 'Muses Library' series.
