Poetry series design, cloth.

Navy blue cloth boards. Design mainly in gilt (on front cover and spine only): on the front cover, a re-use (upside down) of the design from The Gresham Library of Standard Fiction, 1903: the title in sans serif capitals on a gilt blocked rectangle surrounded by swirling branches bearing clusters of blue roses beside groups of small open circles. On the spine, the first poetry series design executed with the slight difference of pale blue tinting of the rose petals; author in architectural sans serif capitals punctuated with inverted teardrops, at top and bottom a motif of three roses over an inwardly bowed frame and a stylised outline heart. Unsigned. Cream endpapers signed TM, with the design of the first poetry series, second form, differently executed: entwined stems outlined in pale green and the scatter of roses in pink (LO/C32). Series renamed The Red Letter Poets. The titles available in this issue appear to have been the same twelve as Gresham issued as a boxed set in A Library of Choice Poetry. From the collection of David Rodger LO/C32. Inscription on endpaper, signed "Elise", dated Jan 18th 1928 LO/C32. xi, 278 pages, frontispiece (portrait) ; 16cm.
