Goblin Market

ROSSETTI, Christina / HOUSMAN, Laurence

IN RARE NINETEENTH CENTURY DUSTWRAPPER

ROSSETTI, Christina Goblin Market

Macmillan, 1893.

First edition illustrated by Housman. 12mo. Original green cloth elaborately decorated in gilt, in the original dustwrapper. All edges gilt. Illustrated title page, 12 full page illustrations and numerous line drawings by Housman. A fine, bright copy in a crisp, near fine dustwrapper, which is in lovely, bright condition, clean and fresh with just a short closed tear to the lower joint and a shallow (50mm) chip to the head of the spine, grazing the "G", shaving the top third of the "O" and just affecting the "B".

Rossetti's classic fantastical poem presented by Housman in this glorious example of fin de si├Ęcle book production. One of Housman's earliest forays into book illustration and probably the work for which he is best known.
