Bragdon, Claude Fayette  
The Golden Person in the Heart
 Picture
Publisher: Brothers of the Book, 1898 Governeur, NY.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 16mo - over 5¾ - 6¾" tall LIMITED EDITION: "Of this edition three hundred and fifty coipies have been printed during November, MDCCCXCVIII, for the Brothers of the Book, this copy being number 59." A man of many talents, Claude Fayette Bragdon (1866-1946) was an architect, artist, writer, philosopher, and stage designer. Bragdon's work in these varied fields interrelated and overlapped, tied together by his theosophical belief in creating and communicating beauty. "The Golden Person in the Heart, the initial poem in this little volume, is the result of an attempt to present, in metrical form, such of the tenets and teachings of Brahmanism as may best indicate the main outlines of that most ancient and wonderful philosophy, as set forth in the Upanishads, and others of the sacred books of the East. the poem is in no sense a work of erudition, but only a bee's burden of honey gathered from the thousand flowers of an oriental garden in which the author has spent many precious and memorable hours. Of the remaining verses, some few have been published in The Chap-Book, The Lotus, The Fly Leaf and The New Bohemian, but the larger number are here presented for the first time." 42 pages. Book is in GOOD or better condition. No dust jacket.

Hemans, Mrs. Felicia  
The Poetical Works of Mrs. Felicia Hemans; Complete in One Volume
 Picture
Publisher: Grigg & Elliot, 1836 Philadelphia, PA.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Leather-bound 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Felicia Hemans was a noted and widely published British poet of the early nineteenth-century. "Several years have elapsed since the publishers of the present volume collected the various detached pieces of Mrs. Hemans' poetry, and gave them to the public, in connection with the poetry of Heber and Pollock, in a single volume. Many additional effusions from her pen have since been published in the British journals; these have been industriously sought for, and superadded, in this new edition, to the number contained in prior publication. To suit the convenience of those who desire to possess the works of Mrs. Hemans separately, the productions of the before mentioned authors are not included in the present volume. The publishers believe that this volume contains all the poems of Mrs. Hemans which have hitherto been published; and that, therefore, it may be considered as a complete edition of her works." xii + 444 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition; some discoloration to pages. Leather binding with marbled endpapers; no dust jacket.

Young, Edward  
The Complaint, or Nigbht Thoughts, on Life, Death, and Immortality
 Picture
Publisher: M. & W. Ward, 1809 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall Edward Young with a cleric and poet of the first half of the eighteenth century. "Night Thoughts" is his most famous work. The book also includes a brief biography of Young. "As the occasion of this Poem was real, not fictitious, so the method pursued in it was rather imposed, by what spontaneously arose in the Author's mind, on that occasion, than meditated or designed; which will appear very probable from the nature of it. For it differs from the common mode of poetry, which is from long narrations to draw about morals. Here, on the contrary, the narrative is short, the morality arising from it makes the bulk of the Poem. The reason of it is, that the facts mentioned did naturally pour these moral reflections on the thought of the Writer."264 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. Leather over boards. No dust jacket.

Appr.: | AUD 43.01 CAD 43.48 EUR 29.85 GBP 23.88 JPY 4,000.00 MXN 500.00 ZAR 430.11
