£1,250.00

Very Rare First edition, A Dream of Fair Women by Alfred Lord Tennyson.
This is an exceptionally rare first edition printed in 1900, the inscription opposite the title page reads of this work, an Edition-de-luxe on hand made paper, limited to 125 copies (the more common first edition has a cream colour covering), making this by far the rarest book I possess. It is in lovely condition, covered in crimson cloth with beautiful gilt lettering and decoration to front cover and spine, it has all forty stunning plates by Edmund. J. Sullivan within. When it comes down to price it is a tough one as you will not see another, I know that if you buy this I will never get to hold another.
