London: Macmillan, 1907. Prize binding. Octavo. Finely bound by Bickers and Son in tree calf bordered with foliate gilt ruling, central gilt motif of the "Girls Public Day School Trust" to front board, raised bands, brown label and extra gilt decoration to spine; all edges vividly marbled, matching marbled endpapers, board edges decorated with gilt. Illustrated with portrait frontispiece. Binder's stamp. Binding is attractive and shows very well; colours and patterns remain vibrant and without scuffs or marks. Internally clean, with minor foxing to prelims. This volume contains the works of perhaps the single greatest Victorian poet, whose turn of phrase has made him the ninth most quoted writer in the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. Thoroughly suitable to bear the legend "Knowledge is now no more a fountain sealed" on its front board. Binder's stamp, "Bickers and Son, Leicester Squ" to verso of front flypaper. Awarded to "Muriel Brown" as the "Prize for Science" in 1909, with a neat inscription. Item #43594
