ASHENDENE PRESS.
SPENSER, EDMUND. Minor Poems. Chelsea: Printed at the Ashendene Press, 1925.
Folio. Printed in black, red and blue. Some Greek type. Original quarter calf over vellum, spine gilt-lettered, deckle edges preserved. Custom slipcase. Light rubbing and a little soiling, upper hinge starting.

ONE OF 200 COPIES. Companion volume to the Faerie Queene. "There is a larger use of blue than in any of the other books ... For this reason, and because of the varying length of the lines of the different poems included in the volume, it presented a more than usually difficult and interesting typographical problem" (Hornby 35).
