About This Item

London: Henry Frowde, 1908. Original elaborately gilt decorated cloth, t.e.g., ribbon marker. Usual foxing to endsheets, otherwise a fine copy in lightly frayed and smudged (but very scarce) dust jacket. Slipcase. From the collection of Frederick B. Adams, Jr., with his bookplate. First edition (one of 2000 copies printed). A superb presentation copy, inscribed by Hardy in the month of publication to his future second wife, Florence Dugdale: "Miss F.E. Dugdale: with the Editor's kind regards. November 1908." With an autograph correction by Hardy on p. iv and a few pencil markings in the text. This is one of two presentation copies singled out by Purdy for mention. "...Hardy's most considerable tribute to a Dorset man whom he had known 'well and long', whose friendship he had cherished, and whose poetry had in some measure influenced his own. It entailed uncongenial work of a critical and editorial nature he would hardly have assumed under other circumstances ..." - Purdy. PURDY, pp. 135-7.
