Ballads and Songs of Love

£150.00

Product description

Book Description: Bremer Presse, Munchen, 1930. 71 songs printed in heavy type on art paper with no ornamentation, a characteristic of this collected press. No. 118 of 200 copies.

Excerpts from the book:
'April is in my Mistress' face,
And July in her eyes hath place:
Within her bosom is September;
But in her heart a cold December.'

'Dearest Jeany, thou must love me. -
Troth, my bonny lad, I do. -
Since thou sayes so, come I'll prove thee,
Dearest thou must kiss me too. -
Take a kiss or two, my own dear Jockie,
For more I dare give none, I trow. -
Fush, quoth he, be not unlucky. -
Pray, wedd me first and all will do.'

Condition: Interior of book is good. The boards are sun-faded and lightly foxed. The spine is faded and has tiny neat slit of under 2 cm. Minor shelfwear to head and tail of spine and slight corner bumps. A small mark, possibly from a trapped insect, has penetrated adjacent page 131. The foreedge is uneven due to the leaves having been handcut. The binding is slightly loose.
