Spenser's Faerie Queene Books I-III, Book IV-VII; Vol I & II

£40.00

Product description

These are the poetical works of Edmund Spenser, presented in three volumes*. Our set are volumes I and II.

Our copies are published in 1972, reprinted lithographically in Great Britain at the University Press, Oxford from the corrected sheets of the first edition. Dust jackets are in fair condition, but have sun damage on the spine and inner edges of the covers, with slight tears in the paper at the top of the spine. Possibly a hint of water damage on the spine on the dust jacket of volume I. Both dust jacket shave slight foxing or possibly a tea stain(?). The cover themselves are in very good condition, tiny bumps on two of the corners. No visible damage to any of the pages. Cover is board with black cloth, stamped on front, with gold writing on spine. 520 and 520 pages.

*The way in which these works were divided is unclear. The two volumes we have on hand appear to be the complete works, encompassing books 1-3 and 4-7. Our research has demonstrated that even though it is 'presented in three volumes', the set usually only contains two volumes. Even more confusingly, there is an additional page before the title page which lists the title and 'Volume II' and 'Volume III' in the volume I and volume II book, respectively. This may be a misprint, but it is unclear.
