Siegle, Hill & Co., 1910.

First edition. Edition de Luxe, number 193 of 550 copies, printed on hand made paper and signed by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. Folio. Full white vellum with elaborate gilt decoration to the upper cover, depicting a regal looking peacock. Gilt embellishments to the spine and an olive green spine label lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. Frontispiece and title page illuminated in full colour. Ten other colour illuminations. The text is beautifully printed in red and black.

The lavish decoration and sumptuous embellishments give this the feel of a medieval manuscript. A fabulous production of this most famous of philosophical love poems.
